My '05 525i with 83K is coming up to be due for another oil change within the next few weeks. I've been looking around for good oil to use for it but need some suggestions/opinions.
The last oil change I did I used Mobil 1 0W40 Advanced Full Synthetic European Car Formula. It seems like a good oil, but a friend of mine told me he uses Liqui Moly in his Audi so I looked at saw a couple of options that would be good for my car:
Liqui Moly 2039 Longtime High Tech 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (BMW LL04)
Liqui Moly 2332 Leichtlauf High Tech 5W-40 Engine Oil (BMW LL01)
Is Liqui Moly a good brand to use and if so, any of the two above better or best to use for my car? Or are there better ones anyone would recommend besides Liqui Moly or Mobil 1?
What about oil filters? Any recommendations on that? Been using Fram Tough Guard TG8081.
