Oil

Better check with BMW. Mobil One may not be recommended. It used to be recommended when nothing else was available.

The independent mechanic I use....tells me Mobil One does not match with BMW specs on my 2007 328i engine. This is a guy...who really knows Beemers. He also said that you don't want to run oil thicker than what is prescribed as these new engines have some very small oil passages.

So..I will be using the prescribed BMW oil for my interim changes...on my ordered f30.

Also....just read that Bob of Bob The Oil Guy (an independent oil test site)...drives a Beemer...and uses only BMW oil.
