I use 5W-30 Pennzoil Euro-L, one of the few oils I can easily get with BMW LL-04 for my diesel engine, pair it with a Mahle filter

I buy the Mahle filters off rock-auto $11/each
and the oil from Walmart online, it's like $22/5 quart

I also buy two oil changes at a time to get the free shipping off Walmart's website

I do 5k mile OCI, at 5k I do it myself, when I hit 10k on the CBS I take it into the dealership for the free change. They do use 0W-30 but don't think it hurts to switch back and forth.

Another thing to keep in mind is if you run E85, you need to change your oil more frequently.

Based on oil analysis, I lost 2500 miles (from 7500 to 5000) of TBN retention using Redline oil. No more extended OCI for me.

I didn't realize the Ultras came with the o-rings and crush washer until now.
On amazon the fram is over 2x the price as Mann.
Like 8 bucks at Walmart and considering we all use 40 bucks a week for gas....................

I got a new N63 engine under the Bang Class action and noticed the first fill was LL12 FE. I asked the dealer and was informed this is the new standard across the board (even through all posts say it's Diesel only for single turbo). Given issues I had with valve stem seals on old engine with LL01 high SAPS oil, I am going to keep using LL12 0W30 Fuchs brand and change the oil myself every 5K miles. No oil consumption, better gas mileage by at least 1 mile/gallon albeit a new engine. Low TBN (~8.9) should be OK if I'm changing every 5K.
