FYI - just checked my last invoice and the correct part number is:

07-51-0-009-420

...they also over-filled my engine slightly (.3 qts according to them), so I had to take it back to have it drained. Would have just done it myself, but wanted it documented in case it was substantially overfilled.

Never been so happy to be off warranty so I can just do the change myself : )

Hilarious responses..but still wont help your oil from shearing at full op temperature..still tho I am amazed at the level of mis-information here...

Statements like "oh I can use a 30 weight instead of a 60 weight beacuse its not that hot and I like my engine to run cooler"..this shows some people have no clue how oil works inside an engine..so yea Im negative.but thats so the next dolt who comes along and reads this thread will not think its ok to use a 30 weight in an M engine...if you cant stand the heat stay outta the kitchen..just sayin

I run the 10 60 in my car, but if you think that is the only, holy grail of oil to run, then your are totally misinformed. Even the manual states that. OP I wouldn't worry. Just save all your documents just in case. I believe the primary reason for the 10 60 is bearing tolerances, which BMW still hasn't seemed to get 100%

The BMW manual says "ok to top off with other oils"..not to fill entire engine and crank and run for full intervals..because its winter time..

I didnt think this would be something we needed to debate...I guess some like arguing for arguments sake

In my experience, there are no winners in oil debates.

Only losers.

When I had mine serviced in Germany, the tech put a tag on the line next to the reservoir that had the two types of BMW authorized oil and he just put the date next to the oil he used.

Another way to ensure the wrong oil isn't put in is to bring your own oil with you, which will probably save you money as well.

Oil and labor are free in the US for 4 years or 50k miles - whichever is first : )
