A). It doesn't exist in most countries

B). Far better LL01 oils are available
1. See post #12

2. Prove to me that they're better somehow. It's such a stupid topic, change your oil every 7500-10k with some LL-01 and it's fine.

BMW Long-life rating LL-01 Approved Synthetic Oils for the US Market:

Castrol Syntec European Formula SAE 0W-30

Mobil 1 SAE 0W-40

Pennzoil Platinum European Formula Ultra SAE 5W-30

Valvoline SynPower SAE 5W-30
OR

If you live in Europe, get any LL-04 oil.

Or even better, go to the dealership and say "Hey, what oil do you guys use when people get oil changes here?" It's so ****ing simple, there's no point in cluttering this forum with the same dumb question.

If you want to argue the pointless argument of "Which LL-01 oil is better," go to Bob's The Oil Guy, where absolutely no conclusion is ever made.

Just. Choose. One.
