- 6 quarts of BMW M TwinPower 10W60 synthetic motor oil
- 1 OEM Mahle oil filter kit
Genuine BMW 10W60 M "TwinPower Turbo" synthetic engine oil is formulated exclusively for BMW M engines from 2001-2013. This is the newest BMW 10W60 oil, now produced by Shell, and replaces the previous Castrol TWS and Edge 10W60 engine oil. The new oil is offered in the same viscosity grade but with a slightly revised formula that meets API SN specs. The new formula has a new additive package that promotes greater fuel efficiency and less emissions, especially on cold start ups. The additives reduce the oil's effectiveness at higher temps so we prefer Red Line 10W60 or Race 50WT for track use. Our recommended oil change interval is 5,000-6,000 miles with regular used oil analysis.
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. They are engineered for the correct fit and filtration needs of the S54 Motorsport six-cylinder engine.
