In Reply to: Need help-What type oil is BMW #07-51-0-002-545 ? posted by Eric.A on August 05, 2001 at 11:01:23:

My first two service order sheets list this oil as being used twice to refill my M Coupe.

Complete listing is: 07-51-0-002-545 5W40 High Performance.

I'm a bit concerned because I don't think this is a synthetic oil. Can someone verify if this was mineral or synthetic oil?

For the last two changes they used 5W30 Synthetic, which I know is the correct oil. I dread the fact that I may have ran ~8K between changes on mineral based oil.
