Right on! In particular, you want to make sure that the oil meets JASO MA2 spec. That part if VERY important for your wet clutch.I ran Valvoline in my 2005 LT with no issues. Now that I have the 2015 RT, I'll probably stick with it but may give Rotella a try to see if my shifting improves. Someone else on this forum had a good result with the Rotella 5W40 and shifting. The bottom line is follow the maintenance schedule and any quality oil meeting BMW's specs will do the job.
I order 2 ea of these 6 packs and it covers three oil changesI just use this. It works.
