I'd just stick with the 15W-50 recommendation and use any reputable

Correct, fully agree. My mate uses 15/60 and 10/60 fully sinthetic oil since first service and he gives a shit about what BMW says, the engine sounds good after over 66.000kms, all it needed was a new alternator...which had of course nothing to do with the oil...
