What oil brand do you use?
I have always used Castrol 10w60 for msport since owning the car (8years) except an emergency top up of Mobil 1 synthetic blend as my low oil light came on and that all the station had that was 10w60 and I was doing an oil change the week after.

Anyway except that small blip always castrol. Now my local parts place has switched to stocking petronas 10w60 and Mobil 1 10w60 motorsport formula instead of castrol ( both fully synthetic). I needed a topup so reluctantly bought the Mobil 1... anyone had any experience of this? Or would you switch back to castrol ASAP? My indy said he’s not used Mobil 1 for a longtime as it used to varnish the engine with additives (or something like that) hoping the motorsport formula doesn’t do that!
It has these properties:
ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4

what do you guys reckon?

Im still running the Castrol specified if my problems yet at 78,000 on the clock so Ill probably stick with it. I do run Valvoline on my other BMWs and other cars, but they dont make the right weight oil for the M.

Liquimoly gt1 10w60
Or the Motul 8100 10w60

I did use the Castrol earlier.

I believe the new bmw branded ‘twin power turbo’ 10w60 is a Mobil oil rebranded by bmw. I’m sure the mobil is ok.
