I agree.

From the OP's comments, it's hard to tell if the OP actually understands what an octane rating indicates. Maybe this may help:
- Engine fuel octane (1)

The OP may wish to test his CCV:
- How to test the crankcase ventilation (aka CCV, CVV, PCV, CPV, & OSV) pressure regulating valve system (1)

These may help:
- CCV system overhaul (M54,M54,M54,M54, & M54 observations) (M52,M52) (M52TU) (M62,M62) ('99 528i) ('98 528i); usually replaced with the insulated CCV upgrade (1).

The guy you're listening to appears to be badly misinformed about what an octane rating indicates.

However, you're welcome to put any fuel in your tank you want (it won't matter all that much either way, as it turns out) - so everyone is right (in a way).
- "The Gasoline FAQ" & top-tier gas stations (1)

See above. It's not the octane he's ranting about. And the CCV is getting replaced. Not going to bother testing it. I got the intake off, everything under there is getting replaced.
