Red Line 10W60

Just noticed that Red Line now has a 10W60. Don't know how long they've had it but I don't think it has been very long. Haven't seen it mentioned here yet, but maybe I missed it. Has anybody used it?

your engine is probably not going to break if you use it but i dont think u'd get any additional performance from using red line oil. so whats the point of the switch? might as well stick with oem castrol 10w60.

yea, i think you'll be fine using redline for top offs. they have a reputation for making good products.

i usually buy castrol 10w60 from dealers like tischer, i always keep a few extra bottles of oil at home in case i need it for top ups. the oil costs a little more than red line but i'd rather stick to oem when it comes to something that goes in the engine.

I'm not too worried about it breaking. I used Red Line in my old 330i (10W40) and really liked it. I changed my own oil halfway in between BMW's changes, (as I do now with my M) so I was going from Castrol to Redline, back to Castrol, back to Redline, so I got a lot of chances to compare and I swear I could tell the difference. Not performance wise, but it seemed like the engine just ran smoother and with slightly less mechanical noise with the Red Line. I would consider the same thing now that they have the 10W60. I wouldn't drain out new Castrol for the sake of changing, but if I'm going to change my own anyway, I would consider using it based on previous experience. Just thought I would point out that it's available now and wondering if anybody has used it yet.

I do my mid service oil changes with Lubro-Moly 10w-60...we have used it on 5-6 S85's and about a dozen or so S54's and it works really well...with my S65 I noticed less oil consumption versus the Castrol 10w-60..
