It's not about running 0w vs 5w. The correct oil specification for gasoline powered BMW engines is LL-01 (there's a couple of new specs, but those don't apply to engines we're talking here).

Here's a thought: You were not using the correct oil, and you're still not using the correct oil. What is it so difficult about picking 0w-40 Castrol from Walmart?

There is an adjustment nut on the steering box. What you're describing happens when it is overtightened. Take it back and tell them to adjust it.

Lol you still talking? 0, 5, 10w do NOT refer to the viscosity AT the operating temperature. Let me break it down for you. 0w-40 is thicker at operating temperature than 10w-30. Got it?

Old information here. Mobil 1 0w-40 is not LL-01 approved anymore. Also BMW switched to Shell/Pennzoil effective early 2015.

Just get Castrol 0w-40 from Walmart.
