: The guy at the auto store just told me that I couldn't get 15w-40 here in the States and I should use 10w-30 Mobil1 for my 740i. Anyone have any input? Is this auto parts guy going to blow up my engine?

Strange as it seems, I'm going to recommend the BMW oil. It's made by Valvoline, and my local dealer sells it for $3.50/qt in case quantity, which beats Valvoline or Mobil 1 at your FLAPS.
And there's no question that it's the right stuff.
