Proving service history is a European thing. No one cares here. I have never been asked for the service history of a car I am selling or trading in 35 years, over 20 cars.

Why do you 'love it to death' and 'swear by it'? Do you have empirical data to show it's better in any way than other oil?

Did you read my post? LL-01 would be 2.5W-35, if such a thing existed. Therefore, thick 30's and thin 40's can meet the spec. The numbers on oil denote a range of viscosities, not an exact spec.

The manual doesn't specify a viscosity, it specifies BMW LL-01. IF BMW were to specify a viscosity for these cars, it would be 2.5W-35 (which of course doesn't exist). This is why thick 30 weights...

Now that my ZHP has 136,000 miles on it, the oil consumption has gone up from 1q/7000 miles to 1q/6500 miles. What should I do? Should I switch oils? Maybe I should overhaul the motor?

My ZHP with snow tires, blows right past AWD SUV's spinning their tires on the steep hill near my house. The look on the hausfraus faces is priceless.
