Best engine oil for Z3M

Post by Robin »

When I put my reg number in
Halfords site says - Castrol Edge 5W-30 M Oil
Euro car parts says - Castrol Edge FST Engine Oil - 5W-40. This has titanium in !
Any thoughts which might be best ?
I found the answer on Castrol website - Castrol EDGE 5W-30 M

I use Triple QX 5w-40 SynPlus Synthetic on my Z3 1.9. Okay I know it's not the M Sport engine but the specification meets the requirements of BMW long life -01 so you probably wont go far wrong. I think if memory serves me I purchase it from Euro car parts. Getting the correct spec oil for your car especially older cars can be a minefield as I know.
Hope this helps.
