Folks

Just had my first oil change and noticed the service invoice from my dealer indicated they used 0W-30. There is a plate under my hood saying 0W-20 should be used.

Does it matter? Should I be concerned about this? I have the 30i


Thanks
Dean

30 indicates a higher degree of protection from heat and will be more viscous at the same temp as 20.

Long terms affects? Probably nothing... but I would still advise the dealer and see what they say.
