I'm using good old fashion 5w-3w synthetic Castrol in a 1999 323ic with 150,000 –burns no oil –runs like a top. I think you're over spending with the imported oil. But to be kind check the 'specs' and see if there is a significant difference if there is not use your savings from "local oil" then buy some ramps a bucket and change the sucker your self –more often with the $$$ you saved.
