    Any ACEA A3/B4/ BMW LL01 / BMW LL04 compliant oil,


    the one Johann linked is BMW LL04

    Whats the current mileage of the car as that may decide between 5W30 or 5W40?

    Ah cool, you'll be right with any listed above.

    fwiw I and many other members don't heed the ridiculous BMW service intervals of up to 20k
    8k oil & filter changes with cheap but good quality synthetic LL01 / LL04 oil will do me fine, last lot cost me 30 for 10L from ECP
