Hey guys, I have had my e36 for a few days and am going to do the oil change tonight, but need to know what oil is the best to get around here...I know redline and some of those high dollar oils are good but no one sells that around here...whats the best to get at walmart or advance auto parts and whats the best weight?

im talking about my engine was completely drained all of the oil was gone every last bit and when i filled it back up i was reading the dipstick and i had to use almost all of the second bottle of lubro moly to bring it up to the line on the dipstick

My dad told me to use 20-50W because the older cars have more wear and tear on engine components and using a ticker oil will elliminate some "weird noises" coming from the car... also the ticker oil fills up scraps and abnormalities.
