    Whats the best oil? What do you use? To everyone

    I hear MOTUL and REDLINE are some of the best (I don't know if this is true at all).


    I see top of the line cars like Ferraris and Porsche come with MOBIL1 so that has to mean something? Or just big money and marketing?


    Any input? Motul? Redline? Royal Purple? Mobil1? Castrol?

    Depends on the situation, Motul was shown to have a few hp increase in my old bikes (10hp),no sure about cars but is really for racing purposes and needs to be changed frequently.

    other than that I use mobil or castrol, i cant remember anymore, i think its more important to stick with one once you decide

    Depends on the car/engine.

    I use AMSOIL 20W-50 high zinc content in my 1990 7 Series turbo, because of the tappet contact with cams.

    In the M3 I use the 10W-60 Castroil from the dealer. Also used this in my E60 M5.

    In my 330, I used 5w-30 BMW oil, but switched to Mobil-1 0w-40 Euro formula.
