No. But you also can't prove using ACEA A3/B3/LL-01 spec oil is better for our cars than conventional oil.

You just do certain things because it's spec'd or recommended by the manufacturer. A whole $19? Wow. Can't put food on the table, now. Aw, shucks.

OP, my advice to you:

1) Replace the entire cooling system.

2) Use Genuine BMW coolant and distilled water only.

The right way costs pennies.

The wrong way be fine, but on the other hand *may* cost you your engine.

You pick.
