I use Mobil 1, 10w50 but its a waste of money to use as a top up oil if you don't have it in your sump already. Read your manual and buy a good quality oil with the same grade as you now have in it. My BMW dealer now carries both a German synthetic and Mobil 1 but its much cheaper to buy Mobil 1 yourself then have the dealer but it in your engine. Change you oil more often then the schedule BMW is pushing for low maintenance but clean oil is worth it.

: BMW dealer 50 miles away.My new Z has 700 miles, oil is down just a little.Just want to know best oil to top off until I can go to dealer and get beemer oil.Or is beemer oil a must like the stickers say.
