Just need some advice on engine oil

Dear all helpful members,

I just had my e90 shipped to Malaysia. Thinking of getting it serviced for the 1st time here. Is there any special service that I should do so that the car will be suitable with the climate here?

reg the engine oil, anyone know what oil should I stick to? try to google locally but not finding really helpful response. everyone has different opinion. would appreciate if any expert here can share sthg. many thanks in advance!

Your probably best to service it as if you were in the UK as thats what the spec of the car was built to.

Sulphur levels in the gas for that region is higher ...... You might want to stick with LL01 oil as opposed to LL04.
