Oil Type for 2015 650xi GC

As my car is now out of the free service coverage from BMW, I think I will be bringing my car to a trusted local garage instead of paying BMW the very overpriced amounts they want for simple servicing.

Do you know what motor oil type and viscosity I should be buying for my '15 650 GC?

Thanks

It really depends on your driving profile. In General I would go for the Castrol / Mobil / or other top manufacturer LL01 0W40.
If you drive predominantly short distances (about 3-5 miles) you can go for the 5W30 and change it yearly.
Otherwise go with 0w40 LL01

Most of the drives I do are over 3-5 miles, and the distance to my office is 15 miles.

I would stick with OEM 0-30 dealer oil. Costs about $6-$7 per bottle

M1 0-40 lost LL-01 accreditation in the US. Plus they're on LL-01 FE now. IMO M1 0-40 is outdated oil

That was reason I mentioned more than just Mobil 1. the brand it doesn’t matter as kong as it is 0W40 and if you have LL01 even better.
