Opie oil are generally spot on with their reccomendations so I wouldn't worry too much, the difference between 0W30 and 5W30 is that the 5W30 will be a little thicker when cold. More important is to check the standards the oil conforms to on the back of the package are approved by BMW for your vehicle.

5W30 is the factory 'reccommended' grade.

LL04 if you want to use long service intervals
