    Thanks guys. What I figured, but comforting hearing it from others obviously more knowledgeable on oil than me. My wife's car driven like a baby. Sorry for dragging this simple oil change into such a topic. Any advice on changing the transmission fluid? Probably should start another thread.

    I actually read that on the label. I don't see LL-01 listed on it. Although now in hindsight I can see that LL-01 must be "BMW LONGLIFE OIL 01" What threw me off was that most of the specs are SN/SM/SL/SJ and similar.

I have spent a bit of time on the BMW forums and of course see people coming online with their troubles. Some of the things I see mentioned are hard parts I have never heard...

    Well it certainly seems like he would have a valuable opinion. Pretty full stable with 3 BMW's in it. I have no problem with M1, but have read a bit (very small bit) about the suggested Euro Castrol. So am torn between the two. Still open to opinions. Oil is so confusing for a guy that just...

    Hello group, Now member, but I have checked in from time to time. It just amazes me that there is so much controversy over something so simple as oil. Ha Ha, wrong crowd for that comment I know. So anyway the reason I finally stepped up and joined the forum is to ask for some advice from those...
