Type of oil to use to top off?

Just was curious was a good oil to use to top off when the oil lamp warning comes on on a e93 335i?

Any synthetic will be fine. If you want to be "safe" use bmw oil and you're good.

Castrol Edge 0w30, 0w40 and 5w40 meets BMW LL01. I would pick one of those

Try to keep the same weight, if you know what weight of oil you currently have in your engine for good measure. FWIW I had BMW 5w-30 in the car and topped off with castrol (us formula) 5w-30 for 4k miles.
