- 7 quarts of Red Line 10W40 synthetic motor oil
- 1 OEM Mann oil filter kit
The approved oil for these engines is a 5W30 but there are many times where we feel that viscosity is too thin. And since BMW has discontinued 5W30 for 0W30 we are even more concerned for turbocharged models. During warmer months or if the car is used for autocross or light track use a heavier oil will last longer and provide better protection. Highly tuned engines also need extra protection, especially as underhood temperatures and pressures rise. Red Line 10W40 is the ideal balance between the efficient standard oil and a full race single grade oil. The heavier fluid does a better job of leaving a critical layer of oil on high wear parts - cam lobes, lifters, and bearing surfaces and helps piston rings seal better. Red Line Oil is simply engineered for a more demanding environment while still meeting API SL/SM/SN and ACEA A3/B3/B4 standards.
The Mann oil filter kit includes the filter, two cap o-rings, and a drain plug crush seal. We insist on OEM or Original BMW filters for our customers. Mann is an OE supplier to BMW for this and other filters found in your BMW. As an original supplier, Mann's filter products meet or exceed the requirements from BMW. They are engineered for the correct fit and filtration needs of the N55HP and S55 six-cylinder turbo engines. A oil filter housing cap tool is recommended.
2014 M3/M4 note: BMW used a different drain plug on the 2014 model with a non-removable seal washer. BMW recommends you buy a new drain plug for each oil change. You can add one from the link below. The filters are the same but you won't use the seal washer included with the filter. The 2015 models used a different oil pan with a more conventional drain plug and will use the seal washer included with the filter.
If you proactively maintain your car, and take interest in its care and performance, there are several other things to check during a routine oil change (aka Inspection I service):top off and inspect other fluids: power steering, other hydraulic fluids, coolant, brake fluid (replace annually)empty oil catch can (if added)clean or replace engine air filter (replace annually)clean or replace cabin air filter (replace annually)set all tire pressures, including your spare (if equipped)inspect brake pads and rotorsinspect serpentine belts for crackinginspect all hoses, including power steering, for leaks or poor fitmentinspect intake boots for cracks or leaksTake this opportunity to inspect the general condition of the engine bay and chassis. Staying ahead of problems, even minor ones, will help avoid major issues in the future. As well as help you get the most enjoyment from BMW ownership.
