BMW recommends 5-50 Castrol full synthetic. Honestly, I wouldn't use anything but a full synthetic in that engine. It's got enough sludging issues w/the synthetic. BMW recommemds an oil change every 15K, which is stupid in my opinion. Especially since they say burning a quart every 1,000 miles is normal.
