What is the approved oil for a BMW?

The engines of the BMW 6 Series should always be filled with engine oil approved by the manufacturer - our recommendation for most engines is a 5W-30 oil (LL) with BMW Longlife 04 approval but check before your your specific model and year.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your BMW 6 Series? Whether you are topping up your BMW 6 Series oil or doing a full change of your BMW 6 Series's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the BMW 6 Series models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for an BMW 6 Series.
