You posted 5 hours after the OP asked a question about oil? Man, your slacking!

OP to answer your question, BMW LL01 oil simply means any oil that has a certification of ACEA A3B3+, or API SJ+. Look for any of those two, anywhere on the label, and enjoy the ride!

Indepth information about what the certifications mean: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=538089
