Oil top off '03 325i - Mobil 1 5W-30

Quick question. The dealer does my oil service. I checked it this morning and it could use just a little. The dealer says they use full synthetic 5W-30. I got some Mobil 1. Any problem using that for a top off. Thanks for any feedback! Again, its the 2.5L I6 in a, '03 325i.

Little searching answered the question. Still open to comments, though!

As long as it is a full synthetic stuff and same weight(5w/30 in your case) for topping off it is fine.
