i was having some cold starup noise on my engine because of freezing temps..

after talking with the tech at bavauto.com he recommended me using lubromoly 0w40 oil.
This oil is totally syntetic high quality oil made in germany..
and honestly i think is the best out there for our cars..

get to bavauto.com and look under fluids...

its pricey, 32 for 5 quarts, you need 2 of them...
of course you might tink is too much, but ive been using this brand of oil on my car, and is worth it, the engine runs smooth and quiet.. and it seems to be the best oil on keeping oil consuption down. on my 93 325i, with 122k, i dont have to top up off the oil anymore.. since my last oil change. at 120k, i've travel with it to new york, from SC and the engine went great, and did not use a single drop.. and yes i do know how to properly measure, in fact i only do oil read out, when the engines been sitting for at least an hour.

just consider this, feed and treat the engine well, and it will take care of you..

Well off coure that is the oil then want you to buy, since thats the one they sell.

But even on the BMW TIs softaware, they have a list of approved oil grades.. dont worry that oil that im telling you is even better than the Mobyl..

abd also, Bavarian Autosport sells a lot of stuff for bmw, and they only sell good high quility products that fit BMW..

So go to www.bavauto.com and just look for the stuff you need..

dont you worry..
im running this oil on my car for 15k and the engine works so smooth...

I have to agree with you victorgallas about BavAuto being one of the best online bmw merchants out there. I've gotten everything from them-except my oil. I cannot say that I've ever used Lubromoly but I am sure it is great since they sell it. I, as I am sure you, talk to the guys on the phone quite a bit everytime I order something just to see what knowledge I can glean from them and during one of these talks the guy told me that Mobile1 0W40 was very good and all I really needed. Granted it was this guys opinion but he could have tried selling me Lubro. In any event, the oil weight is perfect for my 74k car in VA. That's my 2cents EuroBeem, have fun with the car.

I use Mobil 1 5w30, but since it gets colder up there wehre you are, you should use Mobil 1 0w40. Bavauto is great, but you can get you oil locally (avoid pesky shipping charges).

you can get the oil locally, the only reason i get form bavauto is that they sell lubro moly whcih is a great oil and also becasue where i am the auto parts store only sells crap..

anyway if you want to go champagne for the cars lubrication system i would definetely use the lubro moly, i've been using it and is great stuff.

or you go with beer for the engine using mobil one, it works too, but is not close to the quality of lubro moly..

im telling this brand makes racign oils, they are german made. is the good stuff on the works..

have a good one.

I'll give Lubro Moly a try next time I'm up for an oil change.
