Cool

magnetic oil???? i don't see the value in that really... do you alpine?

the name itself(magnetic oil) scares me... i ain't having my oil with magnetics flowing through my motor, thts for sure! Magnetic means the capability of attracting metal >>> that connotes metal in my oil?! NO FREAKIN' WAY!

and by the way magnatec is just a fancy name..
it has NOTHING to do about magnets

its a good quality oil. i use it on my bmw 520i and it is lighter and a very durable oil, and in norway they will recommend you this oil as a 2. alternative beacauce they say that sertain motors from bmw has wery small oil channels at least on my car so for me they reccomend 0w30 oil, but that is
REALLY expensive over here
