The BMW dealers are now using 5W-30 synthetic all year round. Seems that the "thicker is better" mentaity doesn't hold anymore thanks to new synthetics. Anyhow, I going to use 0W-30 as soon as I hit 10,000 miles.
: So, everyone agrees wait until a couple of K's are behind you, and then go Synthetic. But there seems to be different opinions about 15W50 or 10W40 (or even 10W30). Any one else care to add there thoughts about this?
