97 bumper + Oil

I have two questions which are unrelated but figured I would put them both in one topic.

The first is I need to get my cars oil changed (1997 - 328i) I currently have 180,000 miles on the clock and was wondering which oil you guys recommend. I will be bringing the car to Valvoline (or similar) . Any thoughts would be appreciated.


The second question is regarding a M3 front bumper. I am looking to replace my stock 328i front bumper with a M3 one however Im not sure what to order. I have seen prices online range from sub $100 - $800. I am looking in the $250 range and color is not a major priority as the car needs to be repainted anyway.

Thanks for helping a noob.

For the oil, that is one dead horse.

Go back one page, then read the oil sticky.

For the bumper, go with the DDM Tuning one. It's new, from all reports it fits decently, and it's already prepped for paint.

I think a __W40 weight synthetic is a good and very safe choice. I do 10K mile oil changes and hit 180K miles on the ODO myself.

I saw the DDM Tuning bumper, Do i need to also get the spliters or will I be fine without them? Also I guess this counts as a bump for other thoughts on the bumper thing.
