I did hours of research before posting this thread. I've combed every inch of the Bentleys, for example. As you noted, the A4S 310R is not listed where it should be; but it's listed in the Bentleys on page 240-4 (see pic below).

Do you have a 528i M52 engine built up to 9/1999?

I think based on what I gleaned from the Bentleys, you can have either a black or green sticker (meaning different fluids). I suspect you have a black sticker based on the oil chosen for you.

Yea, I combed the Bentleys many many times before I wrote this post. You'll notice it IS listed in my summary in the first thread of this post. The A4S 310R is listed on page 240-4 ... but how do you know it's General Motors (that isn't in the Bentleys)?
