    Have there been any further thoughts/findings about 10w60 vs the 5w30. Dealer still recommending the latter. I read the info posted back in 2016 but wondering if any new info is out.

    Hi, I looked at the Bluedriver site and it says 'Engine Diagnostics Only' for the Z8. Does that mean it will not facilitate the clearing of codes once diagnosed and fixed?
