Hi folks I'm ha ING a dilemma, just bought the car a week ago and I love it. Has serious history with it and be well cared for. Anyway I searched and searched about oil to top up till I get a full service done because it was low and didn't wanna mess up the timing chain so after looking decided to use 5w30 I actually searched the preferred oil bmw recommends and that's the oil I popped in. Would you guys say this is the correct oil to use?

Hi Jasonpi, yes this is the correct type. You can verify that by looking at the manual, but this is works for both petrol and diesels (with and without DPF). MINI recommends its own BMW longlife 01 and Castrol. I'm doing oil change in every service, but has its own brand (just for my OCD's sake) to top it up when it's lower than my OCD accepts it to be :)
