the dealer put 10w60 after break in ?!

I got my car from the 2000 km break in service.

Everything was fine , and i asked the guy wich oil they used , and he said 10w60 tws , and i was like hummm ok , since my ex e92 m3 took that OIL.

I got home , and saturday i see on the internet , the oil correct its 5W30 castrol.

Tomorrow BMW will hear news for me , and i want a free oil change.

i did 300 KM´s with 10w60 , there is any problem ? or should i dont get worried ?

Thanks all

I would ask for a sample of the 10W60 removed from the engine and send it to Blackstone Labs for analysis. If they find a spike in metallic elements for 300miles of use then send it to BMW and ask them for an extended powertrain warranty.

I would ask for an oil change. The s63TU engine should run on Castrol or Shell 5W30 LL-04
Or other oil which can be remmomended by BMW. Certainly NOT Castrol Edge 10W60.

Your engine will be fine, just get the oil/filter changed ASAP. Btw your dealership mechanic is an idiot.
