Hi there, this is my first post on here, so bear with me :hi:...have owned my 316 Compact for about a year...currently sitting at 65k miles with no problems.

Noticed oil is leaking from valve cover and oil light has just come on. Have bought the gasket and will be replacing this weekend.

Whilst doing this...thought I would change the oil at the same time. Anybody recommend a particular oil for the N42..?


Did a search and found a list (below), but I am looking for something more specific to my engine.

Thanks in advance
