I have ordered a 2020 Z4 M40i and cannot get clarity on which type of engine oil and viscosity to use. I would like to use the same as the manufacturer and dealer. Thank you.

Last question: for my 2020 Z4 M40i, should the 0w-20 oil be the BMW LL 01, 14 or 17?  Not sure which offers the best protection.  I live in Dallas, TX if that makes a difference.  Thank you.
