Key takeaways:​
"8100 X-cess has also been updated to a "GEN2" that meets the standards for the BMW LL-01 approval for all vehicles, including 2019 and newer, while retaining its existing approvals for Porsche, VW, Audi, and Mercedes Benz."
"With more stringent emissions standards and updates in technology, automotive manufacturers have shifted to smaller, forced induction engines. During the development of the latest generation of BMW engines, existing approved oils were found to be underperforming in oxidation stability, deposit control, and oil life. Motul invested heavily to retain all OEM approvals in order to be the lead in approved products and overall quality."
"For 8100 X-cess 5W40, the "first generation" will eventually be phased out of the market as it does not meet the latest (2019+) BMW LL-01 standard. But can still be used for all pre-2019 BMW LL-01, Porsche A40, VW 502 00 / 505 00, and Mercedes Benz models requiring 229.5/226.5/229.3."
"8100 X-cess gen2 5W40 is OEM approved for all new 2019+ BMWs requiring LL-01 (and backward compatible to all previous cars requiring BMW LL-01)
  • Increased oil performance in high horsepower applications
  • Improved viscosity stability under extreme temperatures
  • Increased turbocharger cleanliness and protection
  • Low pour point for better cold start performance
  • Better additive retention contributing to engine protection
  • Longer oil life"
