Red Line oil outperforms the factory oil when it comes to strength under stress. The latest BMW oils are engineered for efficiency and include additives to enhance lubrication, reduce emissions, and improve fuel economy. But in the high performance turbo world we live in, these oils break down faster, leaving your engine unprotected. Red Line uses a higher quality base stock for its oil products that is superior at withstanding higher temperatures and stress than other oils. Redline oil has higher levels of ZDDP (zinc and phosphorous) and a higher HTHS rating so it does a better job of lubricating, protecting, and sealing in hot environments. This is especially important as engines accumulate mileage and wear as a thinner oil won't be able to provide extra levels of protection. Red Line Oil includes the appropriate levels of anti-wear additives and ash content to ensure compatibility with factory emissions equipment. Red Line 15W50 is SL/SM/SN and ACEA A3/B3/B4 rated. Our recommended oil change interval is 5,000-6,000 miles with regular used oil analysis.
* - the S38 takes just over 6 quarts but are package has 7 so you get a proper fill with some left over for top-up.
The Mahle 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. Mahle is an OE supplier to BMW for this and other filters found in your BMW. As an original supplier, Mahle's filter products meet or exceed the requirements from BMW.
