Your car should use an oil that meets BMW's Longlife 01 specifications. The only Mobil 1 oil that does that is Mobil 1 European Car Formula 0W-40.

Mobil 1 synthetic 5W30 or 10W30. Do you know if synthetic was used to date on the car? If not, you'll want to raise the weight a little higher if using synthetic.

Yeah, but it won't give you much more... not like some of the incredible gains I hear of with TDI chipping.
