So you guys are not using your "free" maintenance from BMW? On all my BMWs, I have used the maintenance provided because the cars have always been driven less than 6K miles annually. When then maintenance runs out, I change the oil myself. I had been using Castrol 10W60 for my M5 and Z4M coupe (OE) but recently switched to Liqui-Moly 10W60 for both cars (S65 and S54 engines respectively) based on Mike Miller's recommendation. We'll see what my next Blackstone analysis reveals.

For the M2C, I plan on the same strategy. I will use the provided oil change yearly with 0W30 BMW/Shell and then decide which oil based on used oil analysis.

I love oil threads. They are legendary on
