Engine oil selection

Can anyone advise what's OEM recommended and what other motor oil have you use?

Running Motul Xcess 5W40 on a 2019 F90 M5C. The dealers will give you varying feedback, they typically use whats available.

Using Liqui-Moly 5-40W on my F90 and previously on my F10. German brand with lots of approvals for German turbo cars.

Anyone have thoughts on oil change intervals? I always like to change the oil a bit earlier than the viscosity sensor and / or computer suggests - especially since this car is a purchase that I plan on keeping. That said, since maintenance is covered for the first 4 yr/80k km - has anyone increased their change frequency of oil changes and if so per the OPs question what oil did you use? I would be interested to see if anyone used a different oil than the oem dealership selection and if itís ok to switch back and forth (Assuming oil meets appropriate API rating)

Thanks for the info. I use Pantere oil 5w40. I change oil every 3-5000 km
