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 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 M52, M52TU, and M54 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.
