Hey Guys

Which oil is best to use for my 2006 X3 3.0D Auto?

Thanks!

Shell Helix HX7 or Shell Helix ultra both will be more than adequate for your vehicle (Helix Ultra being the "better" of the two if you drive your vehicle hard) however there are more expensive exotic options available such as LM and Mobil1.

Thanks! 5w 30 or 5w 40?
