Mini say its fine but us cautious ones change it far more often. Lots of debate as to whether it's needed but in the end it doesn't cost much and cannot harm . Mini now use shell oils if you want to keep current but it doesn't really matter. Any quality synthetic of the right spec should be fine! Lots of threads here and elsewhere on best oils to use too! Have a search. You'll find Mobil comes out ok motul really well Castrol less so but.......

Exactly right. Mini did recommend Castrol but now moved to shell but DEF NO NEED TO USE EITHER. As you say any ll04 acea c oil is ok. I'm on petronus at the mo as it was on special offer. Good enough for Mercedes f1 good enough for my mini!
