Welcome to Bimmerfest! I am guessing you have an E39 5 series and have moved your question to the E38 5 series forum. This question has been beaten to death. Search around, there is a lot of discussion but the long and short of it is that any oil that meets BMW's specifications and changed regularly will be fine.

Use the recommended LL01 synthetic oil.
