I found this:

"BMW's newest TwinPower Turbo engine oil is LL01 FE+ certified. It meets BMW's standards for LongLife 2001 ("LL01") and improved fuel economy ("FE+"). The new 0W30 replaces the previous 5W30 oil used in some 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder, and V8 BMW models. As of December 2015, BMW has not backdated the 0W30 for any other engines but the LL01 rating might indicate it will be the new approved oil for most engines (and replace #83212365946 5W30 oil).

Beginning with July 2015 production, new models came with 0W20 or 0W30 BMW oil. However, BMW dealerships continued to sell 5W30 until that stock was depleted. The 5W30 is an acceptable alternative to the 0W20 and 0W30 BMW oil per BMW's service bulletin.

0W30 oil is to be released in 2016.

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).

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!

11-42-7-953-129 is the new part number for the oil filter. realoem and getbmwparts both show this as superseding / replacing 11-42-7-541-827, 11-42-7-566-327, and 11-42-8-683-196.

https://www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=146&pcid=9
I think D4 and D6 contain low levels of friction modifiers as marketed by Redline when they say this fluid has "superior synchronizer performance." The low friction synchros in an N55/1M 45bz box specifically states not to use friction modified fluid in the gearbox.

Shifting was worse for me in my N55 when switching to a D6/MTl mix and 2nd gear synchro started grinding on me at 100k. Seemed like there was too much slip and gears weren't aligning fast enough for quick shifts.

I put straight D4 in my replacement N55 box and it doesn't seem much better. Stock fluid felt best. I think I am going to drain and fill with FFL-3 for piece of mind since this is the OE equivalent fluid that presumably contains a different add-pak then Redline's ATF oriented formulas. The only thing D6 and FFl-3 have in common is the the viscosity is relatively close in the cSt 6.x range. That doesn't say ANYTHING as to what kind of friction modifiers may or may not be added to each product...

I will point out that even if the formula of the Redline DCTF fluid is better suited for use in an N55/1M box, the viscosity is actually much higher then FFL-3. It has a viscosity rating of 8.x cSt. That lands it between the viscosity range of their D4 ATF and MTL fluid and is 2 points higher than OE BMW and FFL-3. I'd expect worse cold start performance out of the DCTF fluid. This is important to me as I daily drive in the New England area.

Once you have grinding of your gears/syncro's... no fluid is gonna help. Sometime's some fluids may cover up the problem... but on a fast hard shift... your gonna get a grind. I can remember using BG's Syncro Shift in past cars... it does cover up worn syncro's - but like I said on a quick shift it will still grind.

All I can say is contact Redine Oils and see which fluid they recommend. I am still using their AFT-D4 in my 135i with 155K kms with no issues. I drive hard on the Autobahns but I don't ever speed shift my gear. Shift quickly, but I don't bang my gears and tear out my motor mounts when shifting.

I have tried Redline's MTL, but I feel that it's quick thicker on cold starts in the winter. In the summer I can't tell/feel any difference.

This thread reminds me I need to change my fluids(trans and diff) again on my next oil change.

Safe to assume after reading through this slightly unclear thread that....



TwinPower 0W-30 is current CORRECT for oil change for a 1m with 27,000 miles on her??

Yep. Any oil that carries a LL1 or LL4 rating and that is: 0w30, 0w40, 5w30 and 3w40 viscosity is fine to use.

IF you don't live in a cold climate... I would go with TwinPower 5w30 instead of 0w30.

Thanks Dackel... it gave me a warning that says "oil at min level please add 1 quart" which I did today of 5w30 and it still says same warning.

I drove it a few miles to see if it would go off. No luck yet. Maybe I need to add more oil

Drive the car for at least 45 minutes... then see what the oil level says.

IF you do a lot of very short drives... the oil level sensor will not read correctly bc of the high water content in the oil. Go for a long drive and recheck.

Or... just change your oil and then you will KNOW the oil level is correct. You could have a bad oil sensor too. Do you have a code reader like BMW Carly ? You could check for codes that way.

Hey guys, just had an oil change at a trusted local shop and they used Liqui-Moly 5W-40:

https://products.liqui-moly.com/leichtlauf-high-tech-5w-40-3.html

It says it's LL-01 rated...should be good right?

Yes.

I've run BMW 5W-30, Motul 5W-40, Castrol 0W-30, Mobil 1 0W-40 (when it was LL01) and every UOA has come up fine (other an the Motul which has a tendenct to shear down to a 30 grade viscosity for some reason.). I have some Castrol 0W-40 that will go in next and im sure it will be fine as well.

I really have no experience with Liqui-Moly oils. I only know they are made in Ingolstadt.

I do have a friend who deals in used Porsche parts over here. He says that LM is the worst oil around. I have told him many times that LM has a pretty good following in the USA. But he just laughs that off. IDK.

Maybe go on a oil forum like: Bob the oil guy... those guys are very religious(fanatics) when it comes to engine oils.

I do know that I prefer to stick to my German Castrol oil.

Dack, thanks so much. I am going to take your advice and just get the oil changed. Also, because I live in SW Florida I am going to go with the TwinPower 5w30 per your suggestion. One quick thing- I am thinking it's a good time to replace my gear box oil since I have no record of it being done previously at first glance.

Are you of the thinking that Redline alternative is too thick on cold starts and we should just stay with the original recommended gearbox oil?

It is a good idea to change your manual transmission fluid. Especially since you don't know when it was last changed. BMW says it's lifetime fill... but that means until the car is out of warranty.

The factory oil is fine. But I prefer Redline.

I am running Redline ATF-D4 in my manual 135i. I like it. in my e30 540i I am running Redline MTL and its good, but the car sits outside in the German winters and the first few shifts are kind of stiff. Once it warms up its fine. I will probably go back to using Redline's ATF-D4 bc I have some of that fluid on hand.

I believe Redline recommends D6 ATF, which is a slightly thinner viscosity(flows better when cold). I think in the hot Florida weather you would be perfectly fine with AFT-D4. You will need 2.1 liters of oil.

I would also change your rear diff fluid too. Use a 75w140 GL5 gear oil. You will need 1.2 liters of oil.

Order some new(4) crush o-rings from BMW too.

Hi Jay, how are you been? Long time I haven't been on here, been busy and all.
When I first got my 1M, I did the first gear oil change around 7k miles, I got the gear oil from Porsche dealer because back then my local BMW don't have diddly squat, did my research on here thats how I know that P gears run same oil, and here's the kicker, Porsche fluid is CHEAPER than BMW, my car now is 47K miles and run like a charm, gonna do another change soon.
Been busy with the new car lol
If I were you, do the change asap, its been quite awhile since you have the 1M, and if you are not sure, just do it, and just listen to Dack, he is very informative and helpful.
