DIY Oil Change - E39 I6

I'm just about ready to begin doing my own oil changes. I bought a Mityvac 7201, and have a few filters en route from the US (with a few other items). Just trying to track down a 36mm in 3/8 socket (if you know who sells them nationally, please let me know - I'm in NB).

I'm looking at oils there is for our E39 (mine is an 03 530 M pkg). I see Crappy Tire has a Mobile 1, with BMW LL-01 approval. I also get my bike oil from Amsoil, where they have a BMW LL-04 approved product, 5w-40. An Esso distributor has Mob 1 0w40 as well a bit cheaper than Amsoil.
For all you do it yourselfers, what are you using for oil??
