    Before I put my foot in my mouth again, is this what you would recommend for the N54 engine? I'm due for my non-free oil change soon and tossing ideas around.

    Yes either this 5w40 or 10w40. Final weight is up to you. Depends on the climate your are in etc...

    If you would like i can set up a complete Motul Fluids package, to include coolant, trans oil, motor oil, and brake fluid... Let me know if you are interested.

    That goes for anyone else as well, Ill start a new Motul thread in the SSP Section

    I know NOTHING about engine oil. So you're saying that this won't rise above 250F in an N54/55?

    I believe the Limp Mode is triggered at 304F...

    One of my customers in VA that races BMW's noticed that there was a problem on very hot track days, the oils they (and the other three TTM3's) were using were getting too hot. Now, seeing that it happened to more than one vehicle on the same day, they decided to use some of the Motul that they brought out for unrelated testing. They subsequently found that the Motul 300V they ran kept oil temps cooler by 30F or so. I cannot assure you that it wont rise above 250F on the hottest days, but i can assure you that it wont rise over 300F on the absolute hottest day.

    Same shop, to see what happens to the oil under high heat, placed three or four different sample on a baking sheet. Heated each one from the bottom of the sheet and found that while the other oils started to coke, Motul runs clear and strong.

    ^^ One of these days, i will go perform this experiment myself and post it up for every one to see the results. Click here to enlarge
