  • Oil gear: Castrol taf or Mobil shc 630?

    I found on ebay the Mobil SHC 630 and Castrol TAF (75-90 is the right shade of Castrol?)

    what do you recommend?

          Luca, as far as I know BMW filled them with Mibil SHC when new but I've never tried it. I use the Castrol and it's a bit on thick side so, better when hot.

          If I was you I'd buy both and try them both. Let us know!
