BMW drops Castrol

I see BMW is switching to Shell Oil starting January 1, 2015. If this has anything to do with the prevention of intake manifold fouling on the direct injection engines, I will switch now.

My guess

My guess is that the tire pressure will increase. How much, I don't know but my guess is just a few pounds.

My 2008 I know has a trunk key. I will look at the X3 today to see if it has a key opening. The transport mode idea I am still researching.

When I get back a dead battery is not a problem.

I have a jump start battery that I can use if the car battery is dead.

I am just trying to figure out what is best for the car and the battery.

New AGM battery- Disconnect for vacation?

I read that AGM batteries do not discharge much when storing the car for a month or two. Did I dream this?

How do I turn off car theft alarm to decrease battery drain?

Houston (Munich) I think we have a problem

Knowing this, I am glad to be rid of my 335d. If Diesel engines require a major cleaning every 60k miles or so what good are they? Who cares about mpg if this is part of the equation?
