Mobil 1 5w-30 is not BMW LL rated. It is also onlu ACEA A1 rated.
The only Mobil 1 oil that is BMW rated is the ow-40 european car formula.
You should check Autozone for German made Castrol 0w-30, it is BMW LL01 rated.
The Castrol 0w-30 made in Germany is A3 rated for longer oil change intervals and it will not thin out of grade as easily as Mobil 1.
