What is the Best Engine oil for FX35?

Hi,

I currently use Mobil 1 5w30 on my fx35 with the dealer filter. I've searched posts on here and seems that mobil 1 tends to be alot of people's choice aside from Royal Purple, Amsoil, Penzoil, etc.

What i'm wondering is can i use the engine oil from BMW or Audi, the ones that go 70K? I'm wondering if there's more to it than just the oil? Anyone ever look into that?

Thanks!

Phantom

It seems like alot of people use either the mobil 1 filter or the k&n filter. How much more superior is it over the dealership filter?

Thanks guys!

What do you guys think of Mobil 1 Extended performance rated at 20,000km oil change?

Also, why is it that some use the FX45 oil filter over the FX35?

From what I heard the FX35 filter is longer so it gives more filter media inside and better flow. Going to call Infiniti and find out if its the same part number or not.
