Liqui-Moly has always made excellent oils, I've used the I'm my MB and use them on my Subaru. On my Lexus I stick with Toyota as it's made by Mobil1 and to me also satisfactory.

Does it glow in the dark?

Read the it fluoreses under UV light to help find leaks.

Don't have leaks but am thinking of trying it in my R52 JCW MINI.

So looks like a new breed of oil or is it snake oil?

It doesn't actually carry any of the specifications listed, correct? Only recommended for.

11% NOACK loss is sort of a middling result and I thought it had to be 10% or under for MB 229.5?
1-1.6% is high ash, but you get a very robust TBN with that. I would not be comfortable using thing in my DIT engine, but I'm sure it's fine for many applications.

Considering it apparently doesn't actually carry the spec then it doesn't matter.

Have the SOPUS MINI branded oil in my cart but thinking about giving this a go. Any more thoughts on it?

LM makes good oils, but now that I see the NOACK, I'd probably pass on it. My guess is that this may be a slight formulation change of their standard fully synthetic (part # lm2041). So, this doesn't seem revolutionary if that's what you're after.
