There's a minor hitch, you have to ship the old oil back to FCP. Definitely a good deal if your M needs the 10W-60 oil.

Unlike N54 engines, N55's have both MAP and MAF sensors. Plausability code means the measured air mass doesn't agree with some other indicator of air flow. If there is an intake leak that causes air...
