Re: 5W40 Oil Opinions

I changed my oil yesterday and can't believe the difference,so much quieter and feels more responsive.
I bought Castro edge 0w-30 from Opie oils along with the filter,arrived within 20 hours of purchase which was pretty good for free post lol πŸ‘

Re: BMW recall

I recieved a recall letter from bmw saying it needs installing repair cable for positive battery terminal line,
If it's showing symptoms give them a ring otherwise wait for another letter stating when it can be done

Does it get regular long thrashings? Or mainly town hops?
Mostly town hops,occasionally gets a few hundred mile trip.
Is genuine bmw oil (twin power turbo) best or a Castro magnatex?

Re: Dip stick

Am I looking at a hefty bill or should I just change oil and filter and see how it goes?
Not had any warning light for anything like that and car runs well with no noises or roughness.

Dip stick

Hi,I have an e87 118d and was wondering if by a miracle that someone would know how long the dipstick is suppose to be as it always says there's to much oil and I've put nothing in for over a year and a half.

It was still a fiddle to get the sensor out- nice to hear the vacuum hiss when it came out. I used a couple of ...
