Ahh come on dude, not approved by the manufacturer means that the rep from that oil company
hasn't taken the rep that writes the specs out for a game of golf and dinner yet.
The last eight years I was still "gainfully employed" (its been a while) I worked with oil manufacturers
and oil analysis was one of my daily tasks,
Believe me when I tell you "that's how things are done".
If you think Moly is the "magic ingredient", use it, (but only if its approved by BMW)
still there are no guarantees.

geesh maybe you can tell me then, does Paul wears boxers or briefs?
I've met Paul and Voni and Oak and Joe Katz and....etc .... many of the other old time Guru's
back when I used to be a "rally rat"
I was there when Voni showed up at the rally on her first K-bike.
I was even around before she was "the Lady in Red"
I don't expect you to remember all that, you were probably still in diapers
