This Track Day oil change package for the 1992-1999 six-cylinder gasoline cars includes Red Line 15W50 synthetic oil and an OEM Mahle oil filter. This kit includes everything you need for an oil change on the E36 325i, E34 525i, E36 M3, and S52 MZ3 models.
- 7 quarts of Red Line 15W50 synthetic motor oil
- 1 OEM Mahle 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. One of the obvious times is at the racetrack or autocross. Lower weight oils can thin out too much, lowering the effective viscosity, and leading to higher oil temps and more wear. For dedicated track cars our preference is this Red Line 15W50. 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 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 many other filters and components found in your BMW. As an original supplier, Mahle's filter products meet or exceed the requirements from BMW. They are engineered for the correct fit and filtration needs of the M50, S50US, and S52 six-cylinder engines.
This oil weight only works in very warm climates or for track use in hot weather and should not be used in cold temps.
