Hi

Is there a specific site where i can buy the filters and oil I need for service?

Car is reading 1800 miles now. I've doen 10k in last 6 months :jaw-dropping

Also. M47 engine needs 6 litres for oil change ! thats a bit [email protected]
That means i'll get stung for buying the little fellas.

What oil spec is it ?

Thanks

I just had an oil service for the first time on my 120d, sprout. Looking back at the receipt, BMW used Mobil 1 0w40 Fully Synthetic Turbo Diesel Motor Oil. But have a look HERE for other recommendations. As for service items, if you dont want to visit GSF or ECP, then you can use THESE guys. Can recommend them as I have bought genuine BMW parts from them before at reduced prices :thumbsup

i was thinking of getting mobil 1. If i get servicepack from Opie oils
i'll get 7 ltrs. GF's Audi drinks oil (typical 2.0 TDi) so i'll have some top ups.

Mobil 1 is VW 507-01 which is what her car needs.

car serviced no probs.

I've changed the microfilter too. One bad thing - i broke one of the clips that screw the cover down onto the splash tray thing. :mad

i now know how to reset the service counter without the need for an additonal plug in tool !! ;)
