Default Anyone tried engine additive/flush?

I do oil change every 2-3k km since I autox at least once during the interval. My oil looks pretty much the same as when I put in, but I want to keep the condition of the engine perfect

Have you guys tried any liqui moly engine additive or flush to get better results?

I do the flush every 3-4 oil changes, then add the motor oil saver to the new oil at that same change. I run 4K miles between changes and oil looks good when I drop it and it never looses any between changes. Hope this helps. PS I run Mobile 1 0-40

Check out "Bob Is The Oil Guy" (search for it). Lots of information on that site about oils and additives.

How do you like the engine response? Do you see any improvement over just changing oils?

I do this in my '97 M3/4/5 and my '05 X5 4.4... Have not seen any decrease in performance... but can't say that I have seen an increase in performance either... I can say I was prior to this routine losing some oil (either burning, evaporating, or dripping) that has since stopped!

What engine oil flush do you use? Is Liqui moly engine flush plus any good?
