Z4 Oil Change

What's the general consensus on product? Read that Castrol German is best if you can find it. Have '03 Z 2.5 115K.

Anything BMW LL-01 approved is good. If you're outside the US you can use anything BMW LL-04 rated as well.

Actually not.

BMW LL01 oil has a higher shear point than “regular swill”. If you want to drive your car like a little old lady ... (no gender disrespect intended)... then it might be ok...

But if you are going to drive the car at higher rpm’s... than you are going to want the recommended oil.

Oil meeting the LL01 spec is readily available so I can’t understand not using it.

I bought the Castrol Edge Supercar from ECS. It’s rated for BMW M engines. Price wasn’t bad either.
