04 3.0 oil type?

Hows it going guys first post here. Just picked up an 04 x5 3.0 with 130clicks. I looked at the previous oil change and it says the oil lube place put in 5w30. Now when I did a search, bmw recommends 0W-40 and another grade which I cannot recall right now

My question is, should I keep putting in 5w30 synthetic or should I move onto a safer grade that is recommended for these suvs. I just dont want any oil burning/consumption issues in the future. Thanks guys
