This Inspection I oil change package for the N63 twin-turbo V8 cars includes high performance Red Line 10W40 synthetic oil and an OEM Mahle oil filter. This kit includes everything you need for an oil change on the F10 550i, F06/F13 650i, F01/F02 750i, E70/F15 X5 50i, and E71/F16 X6 50i models..
- 10 quarts (9.46 liters)* of Red Line 10W40 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. 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. Older engines with more wear and loose clearances will also benefit from a heavier oil. 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.
* - early N63 engines take 9 liters; N63TU engines take 9.5 liters (total
engine capacity). But actual drain is usually somewhat less. We recommend filling with 8.5 quarts, test drive, check the level
, and add a quart if iDrive calls for it. Don't dump all 10 quarts in!
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 N63 engines. A oil filter housing cap tool is recommended.
