Q: Does a 1993 bmw 525i use syntentic oil? on 1993 BMW 525i

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
This will be my first oil change since owning the car and I would like to know what type of oil should I use. Different people are telling me different things. One said synthetic oil another person told me that year model does not require synthetic oil. Can you help me with this. I must get my oil changed as soon as possible.

Thanks,

Philly

Your engine uses 5.3quarts of oil ( 6q with oil filter change). BMW call for American Petroleum Institute specification SG or SH standard which is ordinary conventional oil. You may use synthetic if you like.
