The only thing that I can tell you about the M3, is that BMW puts in 10W60 oil.

I'm heading to the Dealership tomorow, so i'll ask the DIY for you.

I used the above link as a reference the first time I did mine. It's very easy to do. I would definitely buy the Rhino ramps though! Highly recommended because they make it so much easier than jacking up the car.
