BMW 0W30 is LL01 and FE approved. It's a similar formula to the previous 5W30 but with a lower cold weight and additional additives that make it more efficient. The revised formula reduces drag and friction, making the engine burn less fuel. "FE" stands for Fuel Efficient and this new formula has shown small improvements in fuel economy and reduced emissions. BMW 0W30 also has a low ash content which makes it compatible with the newest types of catalytic converters. This oil is perfect for a daily driver commuter car that does not see much spirited driving, track days, or performance upgrades (for those situations we recommend Red Line Oil
. Although LL01 is a LongLife oil spec approved for extended oil changes, BimmerWorld always recommends preventative oil changes in the 5,000-6,500 mile range.
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.
