Fair enough. I was responding to the title not the specific oil brand question.

Honestly, I'd never heard of the stuff until I saw this post. There isn't even much discussion on the brand over on the Bob Is The Oil Guy site (where you can learn more about oil than you ever thought possible).

Is it any good & less expensive than BMW/Castrol/penzoil

Oh & 7500 miles, any brand that is LL-01 approved for the US (or LL-04 if you are in EU)

Honestly, I'd never heard of the stuff until I saw this post. Looks like they've been around since the 1940's making oil & additives.
