BMW 0W-30 Twinpower Longlife Synthetic Oil

New part number: 83-21-2-450-384

As a side note... still no airbag recall parts! (sad face).

Did the dealer provide any insight as to why BMW made the change to the 0W oil? TIA
I just had my oil changed at the dealer and and also received Oil part # 83-21-2-450-384 (LL-01 FE 0W-30) - I was skeptical and worried but the parts department insisted this was correct and that BMW periodically updates parts. Seeing this thread makes me feel better.

However, nobody seems to have mentioned changes in the Oil Filter parts: I received 11-42-7-953-129. ECS tuning shows that it fits N54/55 3.0L engines (https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...e/11427953129/) but didn't see anyone commenting on this. Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks and hope everyone is still enjoying their 1Ms as much as I am!
