New BMW's fitted with BXX series engines (B58, B48, etc) "require" 0W-20 LL14FE+ Rated oils. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND using this spec! The levels of protection LL14FE provides are much lower than bmw’s previous standard LL01. The new formulation LL14FE is mainly designed with CAFE ratings, EPA requirements and fuel mileage in mind, NOT OVERALL PROTECTION. We recommend LL01 rated oils for increased engine protection and shear resistance.
