BEST/CORRECT ENGINE OIL

Post by Mister Frosty » Sat Oct 10, 2009 6:24 pm

As the title says, what is the best or correct engine oil to use.

I know the dealer will sell bottles of the stuff (1ltr for top-up?), but what I am really after is the 'spec' and perhaps better alternatives to the dealer supplied oil come service time. Silkolene? Millers?

Thanks in anticipation :)

For the last X number of years BMW recommended Castrol. From January they will recommend Shell.

Bottom line is as long as you use a BMW LL04 approved oil you will be fine for a non ///M Z4.
