Thanks for the info!!
Very nice to hear that auto rx works on the M54.
I had a pretty severe vcg leak on my maxima that auto rx cured... My auto tranny became silky smooth as well.

The only thing is....
I'm using US spec Castrox GTX 10W-40. Where as the euro spec Castrol GTX 10w-40 dino IS good for A3/B3, US spec is not.
I couldn't get my hands on PP 5w-30 which is group III

I'm not sure I want to leave it in so long.

I'll be changing the oil filter at abt 1,200miles into the treatment and changing the oil at abt 3200miles I don't want to harm the engine.
I'll just do another treatment if i'm not satisfied....

Again, Thanks for the info.
