2010 E70 X5 3.0d - Oil Usage

Post by X5Sport » Fri Sep 08, 2023 1:00 pm

6k? Ouch! Good thing I’ve reduced the mileage on that car or I’d be doing 2 - 3 a year. That being said my old 1972 VW Fastback needed changes every 3k (and it was special oil!). :o

I think that I’ll keep the BMW Extended Warranty running a wee while longer then…..
:ant: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

100% I would keep it going. It's a shame that diesel engines have not seen any innovation for the last 10 years, they have been phased out after the VW scandal,otherwide we would be some real magnificent engines.
