Penrite HPR 5w 40 is on sale at Repco $47 for 6l. It says it is suitable as a BMW LL01 replacement. Good price for 6l of fully synthetic.

Good price. It's a reasonable oil if you still run cats. 

Without cats and if you drive harder, the Penrite Racing/Premium range is a better option, higher ZDDP levels :)

I still use Edge in the M3.

The 328 does love its Penrite though. So does my wallet.

Not their best deal ever but if you need it now.

This (HPR5 5W/40) is what I'm feeding the 130. When I can get the filter cap open 🤣

The Edge 5w30 is often on sale as well.

Supercheap / Repco are like Briscoes with their RRP / savings on oil...

@_ethrty-Andy_ Usually worth asking for the 20l price for HPR5W40.  You'll often find it works out at under $8/litre.

Is this actually a good deal though?  Don't they often do 50% off Castrol 5w30.

Though I am currently due for a service.

$8-10 a liter is normal price.
 

thats why 320i arent very economical, because they burn more oil than they do petrol

I gave up on Castrol Edge (used to run 0W40), I prefer the HPR5.  I don't recall 50% off anything in NZ - except at Briscoes 😉

Any reason you didnt like the edge?

I do feel like it usually requires a top up more so than the hpr5. But could have been the car not the oil

@qube  Kyu, I found the same - fewer top-ups, and my engines ran smoother on HPR5.  That and it's less-expensive  than Castrol.

I got 5w30 Edge for 50% off last year. Usually use Elf oils. But nobody sells it down here. At a reasonable price that is. Like everything in NZ....

Repco has oil on Sale again.  And if you spend over $75 and order online you get another $15 off.  $25 off if over $100.

Castrol 5w30 LL is $69.00
