With the ridiculous prices of BMW synthetics, does anyone out there just use Automotive syns? Mobil 1, Castrol Syntec, any suggestions? I'm revving up for my 12000mile service. Thanks,

Re: Lube????

You'll want to do a search for oil and you'll have all the info you need.

Similar to the "Red-Head, Brunette, Blonde" or "Leg, Butt, etc" discussions. All opinions no conclusion.

For me, I use synthetic Shell or Mobil as well as for the final drive + tranny.

Change it frequently and "just ride it".

Any synthetic or dino that meets specs will be fine.
