Amsoil 2001 330XI 196,000 MILES

Amsoil website states 5W30 European motor oil, as does their tech dept. The guy I'm getting it from says go with the 5W40 and i'll get less burning of oil.

330xi alternator question

I need to replace the alternator. The online sites have 90V and 120V. Any reason to get the 90V since its cheaper. I have heated seats/AC/and the typical stuff. Thanks.
