Cool OIL CHANGE : About LIQUI MoLY

Guys,
I am doing an oil change tomorrow. Normally, our car uses Mobil 1 0W-40 but my car tuner suggested Liqui Moly. After some research, it appears that Liqui moly has nothing but good reviews. People have mentioned that their engines stopped knocking, sounded quieter and was properly lubricated. Others also mentioned better gas mileage and wider temperature range.
Is there anything you guys might wanna add or recommend to me?? I will be your guinea pig and try it tomorrow and then follow up with a review because I am sure it will help some people.

I just switched to Liquimoly myself and am seeing great results, as I found the same info you did online. Ive always used the Mobil1 also. Give it a shot.

I asked my indy shop about this and the guy told me to just stick with Mobil 1 and he wouldn't change.

You're not going to see any difference in oil these days. I would stick with Mobile 1 or ams-oil.

Ever since switching to liquimoly for your cls55, did you notice any difference? was the engine running any smoother? How about in the cold? Did the oil temp rise too quickly or very slowly (thicker oils are resistant to change in temp)?

I was thinking of just sticking to mobil 1 too but currently my car has 75k miles, so as it is getting up there in mileage, the more need for more lubrication and protection to preserve the engine more. Liqui moly looks thicker in comparison, so I was leaning towards that as long as it is within the recommended oil density.

I hear you. No need to fix what isn't broken. But at the same time I was thinking since my engine is getting to 75K miles, I would need *** much protection as possible to make it last longer so was leaning towards the liquimoly since by comparison, it lubes better.

the higher the density the harder the engine has to work. Stick with Mobile 1
