1: Don't really care if you think I'm on the payroll of EM. Think what you wamt.
2: You got run off. Nobody there is buying the nonsense you're selling.
3: I can't speak of ARX, but I don't see MMO usere hurl insults if you don't use it. (I use it, and don't care if you do, don't, rail against it, or praise it.)
4: My intentions were to get reliable, third party, data to compare it to my chosen oil. To see if it would be worth switching.
You, kirk, miro, inhal, have combined to convince me that I would be a fool to use it.
Oh, BTW, I also use German Castrol 0w-30. Not something I would admit to if I was on the payroll of Exxon/Mobil.
And why use those? (The M1 0w-40 Euro and the GC) 1: Both on BMW's approval list. 2: Both are ACEA A3/B3. 3: Neither one makes outlandish claims.

Another thing Synlube can't claim.
