Yes, hard to beat from an economical standpoint. I used the similar Shell Helix Ultra Professional AV-L 0W-30 several times in the past. Same as Shell Helix Ultra ECT C2/C3 0W-30, VW dealership VAPSoil 0W-30, Pennzoil Platinum Euro LX 0W-30..... More GTL compared to its 5W-30 brothers and lots of Boron. No BMW approvals though.
Spec sheet says otherwise, unless you weren't talking about PP Euro L, in which case...nevermind.

OEM specifications:

  • BMW LL-01 (SAE 5W-30, SAE 5W-40)
  • BMW LL-04 (L SAE 5W-30)

OP Update: Continued thanks for all the responses! Though we have definitely strayed from the original question... what are the main differences between Liqui Moly Synthoil, Molygen, and Leichtlauf?

I decided to give the Leichtlauf High Tech SAE 5W-40 a try. I ordered it from FCP Euro and paid via PayPal which may translate to free free like TiGeo mentioned. Thanks for that tip! (y)

I'm surprised you're asking this question, since your initial question has
been pretty comprehensively answered by the responses #2, 3, 6 and 7.
What exactly more do you need to know? Yes, we did stray away from
your original question, but only after answering it. If you should have a
further question we'd need to know that question.

I think he is not re-asking, he says we were little out original question, but he is going to buy Leichtlauf High Tech finally. Not doubts from him.

I think it is good mid level oil, nothing special buy many approvals, so ok :)

Sorry, my post was unclear. I wasn't asking the question again. I was just restating the original question. I do appreciate the responses and they helped me understand the differences between the three. Thanks again!
