The engine oil has a vital task in the engine. It not only lubricates all of the moving parts, thereby reducing friction, it also assumes an important cleaning function and helps to extend the lifetime of an engine. To provide BMW drivers with the optimum oil, new engine oils have been developed that are perfectly suited to the requirements of the BMW TwinPower Turbo engines, and can also be used for all other BMW engines.
It is time for the Original.
The improved viscosity characteristics of the oils support the faster lubrication of the engine, as well as better cold-start performance and consistently high performance – even in extreme temperatures. An active cleaning technology keeps the engine almost as clean as when it was manufactured, and the improved protection against corrosion and wear and tear helps extend its lifetime.
