As far as Mobil 1, 0W40 European Formula is the only one recommended for BMW oil top up or change.
When I look at the Castrol Specs, the 0W-40 seems to meet BMW spec better than the OW-30. Specifically ACEA A3/B4.

When BMW does the complimentary break-in oil service at the VPC, what will they use?
