Hi all, so im on vacation in Spain and my 2004 Z4 with 200+km needed some oil (again).
Have to say that it uses a lot, common problem i understood.

I could only get 10W40 and 5W30, the old oil was a 0W30. I chose the 10W40.:eek
Would you recommend to have the oil changed at a garage or is this semi synthetic oil not too harmful

:thumbsup I added only half a liter of 10w40 but the oil level is on the low end.

So 5w30 is fully synthetic oil correct? Can i just mix that? Would 5W40 be any better at this stage?
