I got a new N63 engine under the Bang Class action and noticed the first fill was LL12 FE. I asked the dealer and was informed this is the new standard across the board (even through all posts say it's Diesel only for single turbo). Given issues I had with valve stem seals on old engine with LL01 high SAPS oil, I am going to keep using LL12 0W30 Fuchs brand and change the oil myself every 5K miles. No oil consumption, better gas mileage by at least 1 mile/gallon albeit a new engine. Low TBN (~8.9) should be OK if I'm changing every 5K.
