I found a good deal on 5 ltr jugs of Motul Technosynthese 6100 Flexmax 5W30(w/BMW LL01 approval) and was considering using it for my retired parents gently driven `12 Mini Cooper Base. It's not their primary vehicle and is driven less than 4000mi/yr, and only during the Spring/Summer months. I used Mobil1 0W40 when they purchased the car 2 years ago. There's only about 6000mi on the M1, but it is 2yrs old so I figured an OCI was probably due. The Motul is less expensive than the M1(even @ Wally prices) and I thought it might be a good alternative given the circumstances. Any thoughts?
