Any high quality synthetic oil should be okay for DE's. During our oil analysis with Blackstone Labs between OE BMW, Mobil 1, Redline and Total, Total offered the longest service life without its additive package breaking down as much and offer one of the best protection for the N54 engine.
With 3-4 track days and regular street driving, the additive package is estimated to last up to 7500 miles on the Total.
