    I'm looking to get an oil change for my 2006 BMW x5 4.8is which I believe takes 8 quarts but I'm unsure as to what oil is best and what additives I can add. I just purchased the vehicle a little more than a week ago and have seen small amounts of white smoke come from the pipes but only randomly...

    What oil do you recommend ? I was looking into castrol edge 0w-30. Is this the correct type of oil by the way, 0w-30? Car has 98,000 miles. Also how many quarts would I need ?

    I looked on the BMW approved oils, and i noticed Castrol synthetic 0w-30 Euro Formula on there so i went on ahead and changed out my oil and filter and put 6.5 quarts of 0w-30 in there.. I live in northern florida so it gets a little chilly here(20-50 degrees), so used the 0w-30 before winter...

    Hi guys, I'm planning to do DIY on changing engine oil with my 2.5i 2005 X3. My plan is to: - drain out the old oil fully out - flush out the empty oil tank with cheap(er) 'new-clean' oil - pour in 'new-clean' castrol synthetic oil And just wondering, how many litres of the synthetic oil do...

    time for another oil thread :D Actually I'd just like to know your opinion on castrol syntec 5W-40. I'm currently running this stuff. I know it's not LL01 approved but: - The OEM oil is a rather thick 5W-30 so the 5W-40 should be ok, right? The syntec is ACEA A3/B4 approved so it is not too...

    Does anyone know if the new Castrol Edge is approved for our rides? Would you still used the 0W30 that the Wiki says for Syntec it no? Thank you in advance.
