Just a quick one, what kind of oil should I use to top up?
Ive read that Castrol Edge 0w30 or Mobil1 SuperSyn 0w40 are recommended.
thanks

I got Castrol Edge, as its says BMW Longlife 01 on the lable and the book says to use Longlife 01. I dont know what was used in the last service as Ive just recently bought the car.

68k at the moment. I assume the "w" is the measure of thickness, and thicker oils for higher mileage cars? I need to do some reading about oils!
