What Kind of Oil Does a BMW Take?

When getting your BMW serviced, it is best practice to always choose oil best suited to your vehicle. Oil best suited for your BMW is full synthetic which a number of products fall under, including:

  • BMW TwinPower Turbo Engine Oils - These are oils designed by BMW specifically designed for, and best suited for, BMW vehicles.
  • Mobil 1 SAE 0W-40 - Oil by Mobil, meant to be extremely versatile and works well with a number of different engines.
  • Valvoline SynPower SAE 5W-30 - Oil by Valvoline, low viscosity, full synthetic engine oil designed for modern petrol engines.
  • Castrol Syntec European Formula SAE 0W-30 - Made by Castrol, this oil is typically designed for European performance cars.

What is The Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

When deciding between whether to use conventional or synthetic oil it is important to remember that all oil is different regardless which category it falls under. For the most part though, conventional or traditional oil as it is often referred to uses refined crude oil. Synthetic oil is much more refined and specific to engine needs, artificially manufactured by breaking down and rebuilding petroleum molecules in order to contain specific molecules chemically engineered for optimal engine lubrication.
