It should be same as BMW oem Longlife
BMW use also Castrol LL 5w30

I chose Castrol 0w40 because it runs maybe a bit cooler.

But OEM oil for our cars is Castrol 5w30 LL4 for EU and LL01 for US

I just bought a few bottles of this oil, planning to do an oil change this weekend. Couldn't decide between the 5w-30 or the 0w-40 but just decided to go with the 5w-30 in the end.
