If this was a non-turbo engine like the M54 or N52 I'd say don't worry too much. Just dont track it or drive it ar Autobahn-like speeds. But being a turbo car you probably want to stick with the tougher LL-01 oils.
The car is my DD, I do not plan on tracking ever for I am no professional driver. I am a grand tourer so to speak. I don't drive her too hard.
