There are also 0W30 versions of 507 oil spec although so rare is like winning the lottery to buy it in the US (maybe easier in Canada?).

5w40 formula M ESP replaced by a 0w30 ESP X1, so just as redundant.I went to Valvoline Syn Power to meet the 229.51 spec, the 5w-40. Meets 502.00; 505.00/01 also, got it on sale at napa also meets an older diesel spec, CJ

The downsizing may have ended, unfortunately many manufacturers have adopted the 2.0T size. I do not want a turbo in my car unless it is a diesel.

Luckily the car I like and that will replace my TDI has a 3.5 V6 that is normally aspirated.

Some of the lower priced 2.0 BMW's in North America have two turbos....

I test drove the BMW X3. I was surprised it had a 2.0L 4 cylinder turbo (maybe a twin turbo). Whatever happened to the nice 6?

The turbo aspect and another feature had me tick it off my list.

They actually get quite a lot out of the 2.0, and its won a slew of engineering awards since it came on the market in Europe years ago.

It's a nice engine, but I agree it's no match for the classic naturally aspirated straight 6.

Just wait, next you know someone will try to switch out the boxer on the BMW bikes....all, no doubt, in the name of fuel economy and emissions...

Not a concern. I have a slew of them stashed away.

BMW's 2.0 4-cylinders are called TwinPower, but it's not twin-turbo!!!
