So this would lead me to believe that most readily available fuels in my are probably 10-11 points lower than BMW requires..

Not clear on what he exception refers to however? Isn't the engine in my 2013 the 'M57Y'? So would that fall under the exception, or no, and what is the exception I am left wondering..

This gets more confusing by the day.. LOL!
