    Full Synthetic 5w30 by valvoline - same as synpower?

    Hi everyone,

    about to replace the oil on the M and I was able to track down one 5 quart jug of synpower oil and then looking on valvolines website it says their full synthetic is “formerly synpower.” Does anyone know for sure if they are indeed the same? I don’t want to mix them if not.

    No problem mixing, certainly not in an s52 which has no special oil requirements. Though I like liquimoly 5w40 synthetic for all non-s54 bimmers.
