3. Total Quartz 9000 energy 5w40
4. Redline 5w30
5. LiquiMoly 5w40 Leichtlauf High Tech

The order of these can be debated as can some of the weights. What oil do you use?
Total Quartz and LiquiMoly have been the go-to oils for M motors for ages. Maybe not the most popular on the forums but a very common choice among specialists/mechanics. Not sure about Redline or Motul.. seem to be more popular in the domestic crowd but these oils really are not that different. Are you changing it every 5,000km? Then it isn't really that big a deal. Any quality synthetic will be fine. I'll probably run 0W40 if I'm near winter or 5W40 in summer.
