Motor Oil Falsehoods

There is an abundance of information circulating. Some of which pertains to motor oil and oil changes. However, owners must be forewarned that not all of the information is reliable. By talking to a trained BMW of Southampton technician in our service center, you get the information you need to keep your vehicle in the best working order possible.

Some owners believe that it is better to be safe than sorry and have their oil changed before taking a long trip. However, this is not always necessary. The oil does not need changing prior to leaving unless the distance of the trip exceeds the mileage length that designates a needed oil change.

Myths often involve synthetic oils. You might have heard that once you use a synthetic oil you cannot revert back to traditional oils or damage occurs. This is not true. You can alternate between regular and synthetic oils.
