I believe there may be a similar issue with VW 504/507 and the BMW LL oils.

You can find plenty info on all the VW oil specs in various posts. Most of the VW oil specs that people keep bringing up are either not applicable in US models, or they are old specs that have been superseded. Since engines remain in service for many years, the old specs may still appear on oil bottles.

People tend to complicate the VW oil spec issue by not looking in their car's manual. Most likely one of three oil specs is required, and at least one of those oil specs will cover at least one other spec.

Thanks for the link!

BMW got creamed in the 90's with warranty expenses related to high sulfur fuel damage in Nikasil treated engine blocks - big warranty expense for 3.0 and 4.0 liter V8's. Never again, apparently!

Lamborghini recommendations as follows:
As per driving condition:
Gallardo/Murcielago : 5W-40 for normal driving / 20W-50 for sport driving Agip

Diablo 6.0 : 5W-40 or 10W-40 Agip

Diablo 5.7 : 10W-50 Agip

Also, seeing as that I am a RX8 owner. It should be mentioned that Mazda recommends that you run nothing but API approved conventional oil in their rotary engines. Many RX8 owners have known to void their warranty by running synthetic.

Also, all Lotus's ATM, run Toyota engines. So API should apply.
