Likewise CRX LS 75w-140 NT+ for the diff?

Hi

Which oil do you recommend for late 2017 M3 CP?

I take it you measure the oil level when warm - what about topping up, when engine cold?

Also what oil for one series 118d on 65 plate?

Thanks

Hi

You need a BMW LL04 oil for both cars.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-686-bmw-longlife-04.aspx

Those oils are all good options as they need to be to meet the BMW specification, so take your pick based on any price/brand preference you have, although if it burns at lot of oil, go for one of the 5w-40s.

It's best to check level and top up when warm.

Cheers

Tim

Thanks Tim

Lots of choice but is the 5w - 30s fully synthetic the normal recommended one?
If topping up only would you stick to the same viscosity?
Which would you say is the best oil?
What’s the difference between 30s and 40s?

Hi

0w-30 and 5w-30 tend to be what BMW dealerships use.

You can top up with any, it doesn't need to be the same brand or grade.

I would say the Red Line Euro Series or Fuchs Titan Race Pro C3 are the best oils as they are proper performance oils, but suitable for modern, low emissions engines.

A 40 is the next step thicker than 30, when hot.

Cheers

Tim

Hi Tim

I was looking at the different oils and some mention that you do not mix with different oils when topping up but change all the oil to the same brand?

Also what is the difference between 0-30 & 5-30w?

Thanks

What oil would you recommend for an F80 M3? I tend to use 5w30 and was inclined to go for Millers nanodrive, but there are so many different types listed on your website that I got slightly confused.

Hi

Really sorry for not replying to the thread, for some reason we haven't been getting forum notifications.

If you need any oil advice, give us a shout, the notifications should be working again now.
