This is intended to be only oils listed as compatible by BMW or the oil manufacturer. It's not a list of preferences, opinions, recommendations, etc. Just trying to have one list in one place.

If you know of others, please chime in and they'll be added to the list.

Dumb question guys but I am currently running liqui moly 5W40, what benefits/inconveniences could I see if I switch to 5W30 ? The car doesn't see the winter, so the coldest temps it will see are in the 20-30 range during fall.

Yeah, they removed it from the jug, but their docs still list it as LL-01. See the link.
Your link is for the Austrailian Mobil 1 0w-40.

In the US if you check for the correct oil on the Mobil 1 web site it says-

"Based on what you've told us, your vehicle manufacturer recommends a 5W-30 viscosity and oil that meets BMW Longlife-01. We currently do not offer any motor oils in the United States that meet these specifications. The recommended oil filter is M1C-252/M1C-252A."

The current US spec Mobil 1 FS 0w-40 does not have the LL-01 approval-

https://www.mobil.com/English-US/Passenger-Vehicle-Lube/pds/GLXXMobil-1-FS-0W40

It will still work but is not LL-01 approved (yet)

Ah, good catch. Yeah you’re right about that link being the Australian version of it. The old USA product had LL-01 on the jug. Did we ever figure out if the oil formulation itself changed, or if the LL-01 approval was simply not renewed?

What do you recommend? Remove it from the list or leave it and add a note?
