[DML] Re: What motor oil to use.

Manual states 20W50 for hot weather. This sounds "heavy" but is not 
unusual for Euro engines of that era. I've started using 15W50 Mobil 1 
(after doing a teardown on a 150K-mile BMW engine that had always run 
Mobil 1 I was sold). Oil is like a religious argument - you'll get a 
ton of opinions on this one, and unless you drive it 100K miles and 
then tear it down, you'll never figure out who's right. 

I know many folks running 10W30 without issue. In any case I'm 
convinced that full synthtetic is well worth the money.
