There's certainly no guarantee that even the dealer used the BMW branded oil if they did the last oil change. My local dealer at one point had a giant banner up saying they used Pennzoil oil. Don't bother getting the BMW branded oil unless you know for sure it was done with BMW branded oil.
I use Castrol Syntec 5w-30... am i wrong in doing so?
