ard seems to have misquoted the book and left out a very important word!

Here is a copy & paste from that document in post #18:
Quote:
The X5 xDrive35ds engine oil is different than
the BMW gasoline engines. Use only low-ash
fully synthetic oils meeting BMWs long-life
rating LL-04. One such oil is Castrol SLX
Professional OE SAE 5W-30 (Castrol #06070).
The inclusion of the work "One" should certainly be read to mean there are others...

Just in case you missed this deal, Pep Boys has another coupon for Mobil 1 ESP for $7.00/quart. Not quite as good a deal but it is good until 2/28/13.

Where is this coupon? I would like to pick up a few more since our "d's" take more than the 5 qts I got with the oil change coupon.

This is still more than I pay for the Castrol SLX from the dealer with my BMWCCA discount.

I'm sure it was correct at the time it was published (footer of the document says it was copyrighted by BMW AG). No telling if its been updated since then or if its purpose is to list EVERY oil that meets the LL-04 spec.

I purchased Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30 (LL-04) from an outfit in Ohio: http://avlube.com

The stuff they distribute comes in a one liter bottle.
