What oil should I use in my BMW?

This depends on your car.  Consult your owner’s handbook or a BMW Retailer if you are unsure.

Checking Oil Levels

Most petrol engines have an electronic oil level sensor which can be viewed through the on board computer in your BMW.  The majority of diesel engines use a manual dip-stick for checking oil level.  This can differ from car to car depending on the model and year of your car.  

Before checking the oil level please consult your Owner’s manual for guidance if needed.
