    Before using an engine oil additive, take a look at this video first (it has interesting comments about how the additives can affect your oil's additives): View: In short, he is not a fan and he explains why, based on science not speculation (to quote the Geek...

    First oil change

    How many miles to do the first oil change? The manual says at 12.000…. It seems a little to far for me. Usually, my other cars (land cruiser 200, G wagen) had a break in period and oil change at 1.000 miles. Thanks

    Crap, I have some kind of an oil leak! (Transfer case output flange)

    I have just under 2000 miles on my US delivery and I just spotted some clear odorless oil on my garage floor. This picture is taken from the front. The four dirt spots are where the tires usually rest and you see the oil spots in the center in relation to the tires. This is where I think it's...

    General Anyone using the MMR Performance Lifetime Oil Change Service Kit for the BMW B58 / B57?

    In the Kit is a magnetic oil sump plug, Billet Oil Filter Housing and a reusable stainless steel oil filter. Details here. The OEM oil filter had had a reputation for failing, when used in BMW models. FYI: INEOS Part numbers for the diesel motor here. Other kits just have just the stainless...

    I ran the first 200 miles on 0w20 then when to Pennzoil Platinum Euro L (LL04) 5w30 for the next 1000 miles. Drained and went to (LL04 LL01) QuakerState Euro 5w40. Oil temps are well within range and the engine runs way smoother than with 0w20. Anyone else made the switch? I’m going to do a...

    Petrol/Gas What oil filter does the B58 use?

    The owners manual sucks at having anything specific. Talks about when to change the oil but doesn’t tell you how. I know where the drain plug is and I can see the filter housing under the hood but what’s the filter that goes in the housing?

    Anyone have experience with FCPeuro for oil changes and mx?

    I'm reading where people are saying you can get products for life. Not sure how they pull it off. But for instance you can do oil changes and all you do is ship back your used oil to get more. Would really change how I view going about things.

    Petrol/Gas US Oil for B58 Engines

    ***If anyone see's something here I need to be corrected on please let me know! I'm no expert :) **** I've been doing quite a bit of digging and questioning of the B58 guys in BMW forums. I really feel the powerplant's oil recommendations need to be region specific. I'm still going through...
