Are you buying the wrong oil? I thought the only Mobil 1 oil that meets the BMW LL-01 standard is Mobil 1 0W-40. I thought that 0W-40 doesn not come in a 5 quart jug in the US. If you are buying Mobil 1 5W-30, you are not using the correct oil. The weight of oil may be ok but the lifespan of the oil is not long life enough for a BMW. Furthermore, if you don't get oil with the BMW LL-01 or LL-04 specification, at least get A3/B3 oil, which only Mobil 1 0W-40 is among the Mobil 1 line in the U.S. Outside the US, I think one other grade is ok.

If you read the rebate its good for any mobile 1 oil as long as you buy 5 quarts. I buy 1 quart 5W-30 Syn. oil or 5 quart as they have both!

Thanks for the post and your thoughtfulness, but rebate or no there are some compelling reasons to buy BMW's oil at the dealership. It is no more expensive than any other synthetic oil you will find at Wally world or AutoZone and it is a specific formulation just for BMW. It is produced by Castrol, but it is different than any other formulation Castrol sells in outlets other than a BMW dealership. One of the main differences is the BMW formulation's resistance to shear wear. It is significantly higher than virtually any other oil you may find in the auto parts aisle.

Then and Than are different words and they are not interchangeable.
