    Cheap oil filters for BMW

    BMW builds some kick [censored] engines. My favorite is my Sig. <img src="/forums/graemlins/19.gif" alt="drive" title="drive" height="30" width="40" /> So I"m puzzled by your logic: you buy (the correct) expensive Euro Spec oil and then gamble on an oil filter? <img...

    Using 0W40 Instead Of Recommended 5W20/5W30

    I think spec'd for 5W20 is different than spec'd for 5W30. The later I wouldn't hesitate. It's just friction. A slight loss of power. My understanding is 0W, i.e. Zero Winter oil starts life with better base stocks than a 5 or 10 weight oil. But I think these are such small things in the...

    Toyota 2AZ-FE 2.4L high oil consumption

    Oh and to follow up on the extended warranty offer you all mentioned, I checked the "in service date" it's 00/00/0000 on the registration for this car, hilarious. Build date was 04/2008, so we are beyond ten years anyway. I'm thinking as it was a commercial vehicle, i.e. a rent a car for the...

    Toyota 2AZ-FE 2.4L high oil consumption

    A quick google search brings up lots of data, I couldn't find data ON THIS SITE, which was frustrating as I know there were a ton of threads on this very subject. I have trouble searching bitog for whatever reason. I'm like a web 0.01 guy, like from the Netscape days, so that's why it baffles...

    Toyota 2AZ-FE 2.4L high oil consumption

    Why is this sight so difficult to search? I'm quite sure this topic has been hashed over, as it is well known that this engine burns oil. There are lawsuits, etc. however, I'm having difficulty finding a few good suggestions about how to proceed from people that have had some success. I have a...

    1987 BMW 535is - pennzoil 20w50/10w30 platinum - 3,369 miles

    If you want to use HDEO, Mobile Delvac 15W-40 is excellent. You will see Diesel approvals all over the bottle, but look closely, you'll see gasoline approvals too, API SN I believe. At my Walmart, price is unbeatable. This oil wins the "Least expensive oil I would use without reservation" award...

    BMW "Lifetime" ATF

    This is a late addition, and I think it was said, but ZF, the transmission manufacturer, recommends 60K miles, more often for severe service. It's on their website. My experience is when changed with a BMW or ZF factory filter (don't use anything else) these tranny's perform great, my 95 740i...

    Unsealed oil filter boxes & people who cheat

    Typical of lots of packaging at my Walmart too. You have to check very carefully. The premium Fram filters have the same easy to open packaging as the other reg. filters.

    Decent deal on GC

    Yes, its the real GC. It was just this local store making a decision to drop the 0W-30. I just happen to be there on the right day. I'm quite sure this was a one off. Picked up a 4 quart jug of T6 Rotella at KMART a month ago. Similar thing, close out, last jug, $9. A little weird perhaps...

    Decent deal on GC

    Thought you might enjoy this: Cruised into Autozone for incidentals and noticed the GC 0W-30 was missing from the shelves. Ow-40 had taken it's place, the store counterman explained. I expressed my disappointment and he replied that the last of it was on sale on the front counter. Low and...

    What fluid for 2007 BMW 328xi coupe transfercase?

    Sorry for the double post, I took too long to edit my original post and it wouldn't let me edit and repost. To the OP, All BMW automatic transmissions have now been retroactively approved to use DEXRON VI. Prior to that, the specs were byzantine. Thankfully, now just use Dex VI. Breaking with...

    What fluid for 2007 BMW 328xi coupe transfercase?

    To the OP, All BMW automatic transmissions have now been retroactively approved to use DEXRON VI. Breaking with tradition, the genuine fluid from the dealer is now reasonably priced, but with Bimmerheads having good luck with MaxLife, that's what I'm using, it's inexpensive at Walmart. In...
