Does anyone know if its ok to run Amsoil, oil and filter in a new 2013 825i? I am ready to change the oil and filter, but would like a little input first on thoughts. The warranty runs until October 2014.
Yes you can with no problems what-so-ever. I put AMSOIL in my 2010 JD X728SE tractor (27 hp Kawasaki) at 5 hrs and never looked back. I ran it to 105 hrs blowing snow before I changed again 2 yrs later. 0w-40 is what I use and I also use an AMSOIL filter.Does anyone know if its ok to run Amsoil, oil and filter in a new 2013 825i?

It is well documented that many vehicle, power sports and small engine equipment dealerships regularly advise their customers that their warranties can be denied if the manufacturer’s brand of motor oil is not used. They use warranty denial as leverage to exclude the sale of competitors’ oils and ensure more business for themselves. I have had this tactic used on me by the local Polaris dealer (it cost him my business). This, of course, is against the law. You never see it in writing.Z15, my thoughts exactly. Amsoil all the way, besides the warranty is now up, so the complication is now gone.
That is their claim, on paper, but some might still not be comfortable with that. There is no real evidence record that one can find where Amsoil stepped up and stomped a dealer over this type of thing. I have no problem with Amsoil's stuff, and use a few of their products in some applications, but I also have not ever had an enlarged paranoia gland over some warranty issues.I believe if you ran Amsoil from the get go, then have issues with JD honoring the warranty due to a perceived lubrication failure , Amsoil would come to bat for you.
