I just bought the same car from a BMW dealer and had them change the oil. They put in BMW synthetic 15W-40, which is what they said it takes. I really don't think it matters much, especially the way I drive, and plan to do the next oil change myself at 5K miles out of the stock of synthetic 5W-30 that I use for our other cars.
