New member here and just got a '99 9-3 with 106k miles on it. I live in southern California, so no extreme heat or cold. I am not going to be driving the car hard at all. I tried reading through a lot of these posts but wound up more confused than anything. Could I get some recommendations on which oil I should use? Thanks for any input!

Use whatever the manual says as far as weight and specification.

I believe this is a Turbo. Did previous owner use full synthetic?


This is what seems like a relevant thread. Seems to say stay away from 0W oils, especially in hot climes. I have always used 0W-40 in my 2004-2011 9-3 but yours is a different generation. I had a 1996 but non Turbo.
