From my wife's Mini Cooper (base model, non-turbo). Oil fill before this was BMW TwinPower Turbo 5W-30. This oil is the black bottle EDGE A3/B4 "Titanium" 0W-30. My only real concern was makeup oil needed.

I've got enough 0W-30 I picked up for $5.50 a quart at Advance Auto Parts for two more oil changes. Can't find it any cheaper than $8.50 a quart right now. The add-pack on this oil is very stout.

I have had decent luck with it as well. If you can find some at autozone in January, it may be on clearance. I purchased my 5 qt jugs for $10 a piece, FYI.

No reason really.
