I wouldn't lose sleep over it. You have a seal conditioner additive that is not needed, but I can't imagine it will hurt.

I see that oil has extra anti-wear additives as well - not sure if that is at the expense of something else that you would have got in regular Mobil 1 5W30.

The 0W40 would have been the best choice as it's the only Mobil 1 that meets BMW standards for long life, high temperature shear stress, and what-not.
