In any engine, the best lubricant is always the wisest choice. Synthetics are more stable at the molecular level than any natural oil product. They offer better lubricity, are resistant to mechanical "shear", high temperature chemical changes and flow better and offer more protection at higher and lower temperatures than any other lubricant.
Of course, if you want to use a conventional oil, it is your option...but shorten up your oil change intervals so that you keep the engine internals protected the best you can.

Most likely not. vehicles that year did not come with synthetic oil from the factory my bet that the vehicles recommend oil is SAE30 weight or a 5w-30

Standard oil was put in the car when I bought it whereas it had always had BMW approved synthetic. Will this oil switch damage the engine/other


Yes, it could damaged your engine,drain and replace filter with what kind was on before,always use synthetic oil,I take my Toyota tundra to dealer to get oil change,and they scan the whole system for free and give me a print out of the results,if something is wrong,they will tell me and how much or I can fix my self.That's the best place to get oil change,hidden benefits.They told me once my license plate bulb was burnt out,they replaced for a dollar.

OIl, synthetic or regular, what's the difference?


Synthetic oil won't break down as quickly as conventional oil, gives better protection and longer life. Excellent product, I Strongly suggested for those out there who forget to do their oil changes regularly or courier/ work vehicles.
Heres the link to an explaination from Castrol
http://www.castrol.com/castrol/genericarticle.do?categoryId=8264018&contentId=6003233
I use conventional Oil in my jimmy with 5% of Lucas engine oil treatment and service the engine every 3,000 miles. I find it to costly for the Synthetic oil every 3,000 miles, and as for the high mileage oil you can buy. The high mileage oil has a higher fluid retention like adding Lucas engine oil treatment to any conventional oil, so you decide on what type of oil you like to use in your engine.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Can i use 5w30 instead of 5w20 oil on a 2006


you can but not recommended. the reason for the thinner oil is the tolerances in the bearing races on these engines are very tight, requiring thinner oil. 5w30 is ok for sure if you are going synthetic.

Synthtic oil


yes synthetic oil can be used in just about any vehicle. Older vehicles with high miles it is reccomended to use high milliage oil but you should be fine with synthetic oil just make sure to use a high millage filter. reason is that traditional filters only last 3000 miles but synthetic oil lasts 5-6000 miles. A high millage filter will last tha same as the oil.

Oil presure low on start up, rod noise for first 15 sec if temp below 30


You need to switch to synthetic oil as soon as possible! When you change the oil, make sure that you are replacing the filter with the correct one. Some filters contain an anti-drain back valve that prevents this problem. The synthetic oil will flow more rapidly when cold and prevent the epidemic problems that toyota has had with sludge build-up.
