hi all,
I have BMW 5W-40 Synthetic in my MZ3 and I want to know if it is safe to mix oils with different weights?
If so, which weight should I go for? 5W-30 or 5W-50 (or others?) What are the potential problems for mixing oil with different weights?

All BMW parts Dept are already closed and I am off to the track tomorrow morning.

Thanks a million...

Frank
