You most probably need LL04, since your car would have a DPF. BMW uses 5w30 spec oil.

Yes. LL04 it is. Go for Castrol. They were the oil supplier to the dealers a couple of years back. Or, pick it off the shelf from the dealer itself. Won't be much of a difference. About 200 Rs or so per litre. So, for 6.5 litres we talk about 1200 Rs difference only.

May be the dealer gives you a discount too.

Thanks, wanted to confirm if the cars sold in India have DPF. If yes, then I guess LL-04 is a must.

Thank you, but I guess its the Castrol Edge which is fully synth and will be closer to Rs 1000 per litre
