Your owners manual should have a chart in the back telling you which oils can be used in which temperatures.
I think it will be ok anyhow, but check just in case.

I have a 2001 e39 and I change the oil about every 5-7,000 miles. I usually use the recommended 5w-30 but this time I had a brain fart and grabbed 7 bottles of 10w-30 instead. I didn't catch the error until the car was drained and the filter was changed. Needless to say, I poured it in... ghead
I know nothing about oil. Am I taking a chance with this oil or am I ok? BTW, I live in Kansas where the summers are crazy hot and humid (if it matters).
Thanks in advance!
