I use Amsoil 0W-30 in my '99 M3 and Mobil 1 0W-30 in one of the others.
Makes no difference whether you're in desert heat or Siberia in the dead of winter. Use an oil that will pump easily throughout the engine quickly at crank-up when the bearings and cam lobes, etc, are dry. That's the reason for 99% of any oil related problems...metal-to-metal contact damage due to too lengthy amount of time before engine oil reaches vital areas of the engine. Next is starvation from oil level being too low and/or dirty oil. It's the heartblood of your engine!
: What is a best weight and brand of oil to use on a 95 M3. And good brake pads that don't leave alot of brake dust.
