Yes, they suck big time. It's just ridiculous for the dealer to have an owner tell them what the correct oil spec should be.

Thanks to you guys & the forum for the extensive info sharing.
Good to hear. Seriously, tell them you want the "liquid gold" as its referred to by the M3/M5 guys.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
