What Grade of Engine Oil should i use for 3.0SD


I have 4000 KM on my 3.0SD so i was going to do an oild change to get riid of break in dirt.

I have been looking at the Castrol Edge (For Turbo Diesels) but I am not sure if I should use 0W30 or 5W30.

Any ideas?

What does your manual, dealer, and BMW say???

Harmony happens whenever different parts get to form a whole by means of congruity, concord, symetry, consistency, conformity, correspondence, agreement, accord, unity, consonance…….

All it says is BMW Longlife 4!

Remember, BMW have extremely long oil change intervals to keep their costs down - I want my engine to have a long life, and I dont mind paying for it
