PennzOil OR BMW High Performance for Engine Oil

Hi,
I was wondering which of the following oil has better quality for my 2004 530I? Both of them have been recommended by BMW but which has better quality?

BMW High Performance SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Oil
OR
Pennzoil Platinum European Formula Ultra SAE 5W-30

I live in Omaha,Nebraska which is hot in summer and really cold in winter. I heard that 0W-40 is better for these kind of climates. Is it right and which oil is better for my condition?

You could har just replied to your other thread where I already discussed this

BMW oil is actually rebranded Castrol oil. Their is no difference. Anything on that list is fine to use. I personally run Mobile 1 0w-40.

Yep when it comes to oils there is nothing that comes even close to Mobil 1. It costs a little more but you save that by many times over in long run in fuel, servicing and repairs. For me w5-50.
