I’m not sure on what oil I should use for my 323i. I’ve been looking at Castrol Edge (The Black Bottle stuff) Full synthetic 5w-30 but also looking at Valvoline.

Which one is good or which one should I get?

German maple syrup is what bmw is now recommending.

About $20 per liter.

You can go either with 5W-30 or 5W-40 ( I recomend the 5W40 if your millage is on the high side). I personaly used Castrol Edge 5W-30 long life. You dont need the long life because your oil change interval is shorter then the recommended lifespan of the long live oil, but i went that way because its the same oil i have in my second car. so that makes it alot easier for me. Also iirc castrol edge should be in a gold bottle.
