The dealer's oil appears to be Castrol 5W-30 TXT. which is not available in the States outside of the BMW dealer network. However the Castrol 0W-30 that is generally available here is LL-01, and is held in high regard by oil fanatics.
However in the end the best deal right now is to just buy the oil at the dealer IMO. You won’t beat the price.
