I got a full oil change worth of BMW Twin Power Turbo 0W30 which also says it’s SN rated. I can’t find any UOAs on it, but I am going to do one done to see what it is. It definitely smells different than my normal GTL’s- from what I’ve read LL-12 has quite a bit of GrpV esters in it.

Long question short- is this ok to use in an ‘07 Subaru that requires SL?
