Is it really fully synthetic? I'm not saying it is not, but having had a search about I can find no reference, including in Febi Bilstein product literature, to say that it is. Just that it is "High Performance"

I've never heard of Febi before and I'm pretty sure they're aren't themselves in the engine oil formulation business. This oil will have been blended for them and they will be re-branding it. I might just take some of the oil quoted specs with a pinch of salt. When you get to this end of the business, performance claims tend to be a bit on the 'flexible' side.

Febi supply loads of decent quality car parts, never seen oil before though.

bargain price if it is a good oil

This official document may help



Yes but that document does not state whether the oil is fully synthetic or not, just that it is an "advanced state-of-the-art, low-ash universal engine oil"

It may be perfectly good oil but the vagueness of the product description puts me off. That said Febi Bilstein are a quality manufacturer and produce a lot of OE parts for car companies.

It would suggest being 5w40 and being BMW long life spec that it is fully synthetic, the reason it's not as expensive as the 5w30 is probably because it's not as popular as 5w30, probably a rebranded product to promote febi Bilstein into the oil market, good price. not PD though so all you VW'ers will have something to debate

Febi is a very well known aftermarket parts supplier

Put it this way... in a shop near me via ebay it's 44 quid!

ok, on the above comments, have just placed a order. my citroen c5 is hitting on 200k miles now, so I dont think the top of the range oil will make a lot of difference lol

I don't see that this is a synthetic oil or part synthetic for that matter. Nowhere on Amazon does it say synthetic and it does not mention it on the product itself, so where does the idea of it being synthetic even come from.
Everything about this suggests it's a mineral oil.

I don't think there's a 5w40 mineral oil made??... 15w40 usually and doubt BMW would recommend a mineral oil for long service use

If this stuff truly is 5W40, then it HAS to be full synthetic (ie made from hydro-cracked Group III base oils). You can get 'mineral' 5W30's in the US made from hydro-treated Group II base oils (classed as 'mineral' stocks) in the US but they tend to be very volatile & very shearable and wouldn't be capable of meeting ACEA rules. All things being equal, 5W40's are more expensive to manufacture that 5W30's but having said that, I think they are worse oils by virtue of their higher rubber content.

OK... here the heads up, after wasting some time looking into this (I should be welding my van!) here's the answer, it is MB 229.3 spec oil, 5w40 fully synthetic long life oil suitable for most vehicles except the ones with PD pumps (VW diesels and oddly enough, fords new petrol 1.2 Ka (specifies PD oil, but I've been using none PD fully synth 5w40! like the one above))... and cars with soot filters 'DPF's'.... though I've known cars serviced regular and at the dealers have DPF's fail at relatively low miles (dealer using cheap oil????? or just a reason to blame something else for a sheety unit!)....

This is fully synth and will be used in all our family of cars ranging from an old pinto powered ford, to a nearly new Ka with a tranny and festa in between

It could be partially synthetic and surely it's not recommended by Mercedes - the Mercedes specification number is listed under"recommended applications" or in other words "equivalent to oils that are to Mercedes specification"

Like a say it may be perfectly fine fully synthetic oil but the product specification is far too woolly for my liking.

£24.94 now

Have got some of this oil (in 4l size) at £8.13 each from Amazon (after I bought it went up so didn't post the deal). Its not plastered with 'Fully Synthetic' so not 100% sure. But to be honest it looks like its aimed at garages rather than retail as there is very little on the labels. Its made in Germany.

For me it doesn't matter if its fully synthetic or mainly synthetic ( its 5w40 remember). I change it every 9-10k so not an issue. My next two oil changes will cost me about £10 each which is not to be sniffed at.

Across the pond hardly anybody uses fully synthetic on everyday cars. Mind the national average change is every 5k. But when it can cost less than £15 ($25) for a change getting it done often is not an issue.

So for me you go cheap and often. But if I were doing 20k per change I would get the best I could.

wow that was a sharp price increase to just over £28, lucky i got some before hand. how can they increase the price so much and so fast?

Because they have automated systems to detect spikes in product sales. It means they don't have to lose lot's of money on large mis-prices. Somebody, probably quite a few somebodies, after reading this deal looked at the price on Ebay and bought shed-loads for profit.

big thanks to the **** who bagged a load and screwed this deal up, Just what I need but not at £28.

I wouldn't worry it was probably only half a dozen units at this price.

true, wish I got 2 when I saw the deal instead of waiting to get home

regardless of how it's made, the polymer count in this oil are good otherwise it would not make api-sm. Obviously the more expensive oil is better being an api-sm. The viscosity rating is neither here nor there. Both are good oils and if you stick to your service interval you shouldn't have a problem with either in most normal modern cars.
