E90 330i 2006 What Engine oil now ?

Panic on. Sorry if this has been done a million times but its new to me.

Cars in for service shortly so just been looking for cheapest Castrol Edge 5W 30 and have found more companies listing Castrol Edge 0W30 as the oil for my motor ? Certainly recieved 5W 30 last time.

Whats changed ? Could it be a transition period between engine updates ?

Not really a major issue, in fact given the climate in the UK i'd be more inclined to go for the 0w-30 anyway (i actually run 0w-40 in my 130i as it breathes the 0w-30 stuff when it gets warm - and it's the same N52 engine).
