I had been using Castrol 10W60 for my M5 and Z4M coupe (OE) but recently switched to Liqui-Moly 10W60 for both cars (S65 and S54 engines respectively) based on Mike Miller's recommendation. We'll see what my next Blackstone analysis reveals.

For the M2C, I plan on the same strategy. I will use the provided oil change yearly with 0W30 BMW/Shell and then decide which oil based on used oil analysis.

I love oil threads. They are legendary on
We are using the free maintenance oil changes every 10K miles, however it's my DD so mileage is adding up, so I DIY every 5K and let the dealer do the every 10K. On DIY I don't re-set the oil clock.
