    Robust 0W20 alternative to Castrol 5W20 ? JLR V8

    Bringing this one back. Looking for the most wear protection possible over a 6k drain interval. The warranty has expired so approvals aren't a concern. The MY2015+ factory oil is <span style="text-decoration: underline">Castrol EDGE Professional E 0W-20</span> "approved for use in Jaguar and...

    BMW M4 (S55 twin turbo) Oil for summer/track?

    Everyone here has been very patient with me, especially 1JZ_E46 and edyvw.

    BMW M4 (S55 twin turbo) Oil for summer/track?

    After some soul searching I would like an HTHS close to 4.0 since the original LL-01 0W-30 spec is as high as 3.5.......but I also need to stop thinking about oils and just fill the sump with M1 FS 0W-40 or Pennzoil Platinum Euro 5W-40 ......then I stumbled on this Motul and the specs look...
