Which is the incorrect oil. Check the BMW approval on it, it's either LL-98 (which doesn't meet the requirements for your car) or LL-04 (which is not supposed to be used in North America as per BMW's recommendation...fuel quality related).
Run LL-01 oil. BMW genuine 5W-30, Mobil 1 0W-40, Castrol 0W-30 (German), Motul 8100 5W-30, Motul 8100 5W-40, and a few more scarce ones.
We use LL-01 oil exclusively, for non-M cars.
