Couldn't agree more, especially on the S54 engine with known bearings issue. I've already got data on 2 samples for the TWS 10W60. It would be interesting to see how the RedLine 5W50 compares.

OP, since you're out of warranty anyway, why not just completely remove the CDV unit and save even that $30?

Same here...I never did any maintenance myself until I got my first bimmer. I have never paid more than $100 for an oil change, even with the MC where it uses those expensive $15 TWS oil.
