Hi all,
Looking to see if there are any specs on these oils. Looking for HTHS, NOACK, and perhaps SAPS levels if possible. Would love to see both 5w30 LL-01 and LL-04 if possible.

Thanks

Thanks. Not so sure these are so overpriced. High quality sopus oils that meet stringent bmw specs that not all do, or can.

I forgot name of that Russian oil forum where there is bunch of data.
Anyway, all TPT's are in mid 8% NOACK. Ash level is not published but LL-04 has to fallow ACEA C3. Also all LL_01 and LL-04 are above 3.5 cp HTHS.

Unfortunately, Photobucket changes have made the VOAs disappear here, but maybe the discussion on TPT and a couple of other LL-01 oils in the linked thread might still be useful.

https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4313614/1

As edyvw mentioned, the Russian Oil Club has lots of good VOAs for Euro oils, and there is a summary of them to be found in the VOA subforum.

You may buy it if you wish since it meets the requirements of the manufacturer. You are under no compulsion to do so however.

Your knowledge of BMW oils and what dealerships say to customers is truly "amazing."
