Bmw Oli Vs Gc 0w-30

Hey - Don't have a 335i -- but my 328i has hydraulic valve lifters that are very noisy on acceleration when on the BMW 5W-30 -- THe GC really quiets the lifters as I am sure that other quality oils do as well. Unfortunately I rotate between the BMW oil & GC --- When the Dealership changes under warranty vs my garage change every 7.5K.
So - out of warranty - will end the 5W-30 oil. Thinking that every 5k with GC in a 335i would be a good thing.
BTW - I can't hear a difference in the X5 -- following the same routine BMW vs GC.
