Exclamation Mobil-1 on sale @PX... $2 per quart!

Just a FYI... Mobil-1 on sale at the PX.

TWO dollars (that is right! $2) per quart for all Mobil-1 grades of oil! Of course 0w40 european blend is the one you want to use. Normally this oil is $7/quart.


I still will use German Castrol... but I thought I would just get this out to you guys and gals.

IF your PX does not have any also try your Shoppette or AAFES auto repair. I thought it was a miss print at first. But its in the weekly flier.

I went to the counter with 2 boxes (12 quarts) and the attendant told me that there was a 1 box limit due to the limited quantities. Then he asked how much oil my car needed for a full change. When I told him 7 he sold me both boxes.

Today is the last day they told me, got 2 cases. Dackelone is there a big difference or why would you spend 25€ for a liter?

I prefer the German Castrol Edge FST (formerly RS Edge) oil for my 135i. Mainly because on cold starts the engine is sooo much quieter, and there is less metallic sounds. Also with the G.C. my oil temps are two or three needle widths cooler. Like when we were on the Stelvio Tour... the hottest my oil temps go up to was 250' F, just at the half way point on the gauge. Normally my oil temp reads about two needle widths lower than that - like when I am driving fast on the autobahn.


I do use Mobil-1 0w40 european formula (bmw LL-1) in my (older) e39 535i v8. But for my 135i I only like to use the German Castrol bc the engine just seems to run better with it. I think there is a lot of tech to motor oils... and like Castrol says... its liquid engineering!



You can also find the oil that BMW Zentrums sell for 23+ euros for sale for as little as 8 euros per liter online. Reifendirekt.de is one such place...
