Question about 1996 BMW Z3 Roadster
I agree with the previous expert.
Get the oil changed. Use what the manufacturer recommends. Your engine is designed for a specific viscosity, and you need to adhere to the manufacturer's specifications. Nowadays, oil does much more than 'lubricate the engine'. The oil moves the variable valve timing, and a host of other tasks.
Viscosity is important.
Too thin, too much volume. Too heavy, to little volume.
...Will it be OK? I would think so, but, you really need to get the right oil in it, Make Jiffy Lube change it for free. They screwed up. Not you.

Testimonial: "I went back to Jiffy Lube with the owners manual, and showed them what the Mfg recommended.. They agreed to change the oil!!.. Thanks for the advise!"
I'm not a BMW expert, but that weight of oil is too thin for the middle of summer. They should have never used it. Suggest you get it changed.
