Fair enough but is it also absolutely applicable in very cold climates like Ontario? We have long and many weeks during winter where the thermometer shows -20 C.*

Is Mobil 1 5w-30 oil OK to replace BMW 5w-30 oil?

I've search and found other specs like 0-40 etc. Dealers in my area use BMW Synthetic 5w-30 oil so I've figured Mobil 1 Synthetic 5w-30 should be OK. Is that correct? Thanks!
