Depending on your location and your driving style the oil used will vary.
Your absolute best bet would be to go to an Authorized BMW Dealer in your village and ask this very same question one of the Approved BMW Certified mechanics .
If you ask this forum , you will be led in circles with no subjective answer
Go to the dealer, you cant go wrong. They'll answer any of your questions, you get to sit in new cars and on the way out you get a free lunch .
