Ideal oil for r50
hi people !
i buy a mini one 1.6i from 2005 and i wanna do a good check up to the car. but i have a question that i cant see nothing that tells me like " is that ! "
Well i buy a castrol gtx 5w40 , because i have made resources and no one have the right answer for that ! some guys says is better the 0w30 others the 5w40.
In the manual that i have in the car dont talk about the SAE itself , on talk about the certificate , BMW longlife 1.
So this oil have that certificate , but i see people saying that is good for warmer weather . I check the SAE tables , and the diference is the 0w30 can do from -40 to +30c and the 5w40 do from -30 to +40 .
so i think isnt a big diference there , i never had temperatures in scontland below -15 (with realfeel , witch is always higher ). soo, if i put this 5w40 will not burn my pistons rings in the starts ? or something else ?
I wainting for yours opinions !
Cheers mates !!
