The Big Switch
I'm talking about switching from dinosaur oil to synthetic. BMW engines have a longer break-in period so it's recommended by BMW to wait at least until 18,000 miles to make the switch. I have about 24,500 on the clock. I told you I lean conservative.
I went to the dealer and asked one of the service guys if there's anything special that I need to do in order to make the switch. He said no and that it sounds funny but my engine will learn to adapt to the new oil. That does sound funny. Pretty cool though, my engine has the capability of learning. Man, those Germans think of everything!
I did that yesterday afternoon and due to various chores that had to be done I couldn't even squeak in a test ride. I had to just count on my engine doing a little learning on it's own overnight.
The weather is suppose to be better this week so I guess we'll get in some more learning. I hope your weather is good too!
