I'm happy with it. The M5 guys (E39 and E60) have been using it a while and report no issues. I've done extensive research on various BMW forums and came to the conclusion that it was fine to try (I'm usually all for OEM). There were also a few shop owners that swear by it too.

Put over 5k miles so far on the oil and have nothing to report. It's also not consuming oil nor have I seen big changes in the oil temp since switching.

Let me put it this way, I was able to get 20 quarts (4x jugs, 1qt of oil in trunk) of Lubro Moly and an OEM oil filter from BavAuto for something like $180 shipped. Not like it's a no name oil either:
