Premium. Check your owners manual but it probably says to use a minimum of 91 octane.

93 bro, dont put 91 or lower. If you do it have at least $5000 in your pocket

Some states (like mine) only have 91 octane premium. Since California is probably the biggest market in the world for BMW's you can bet they should run OK on 91.

I use regular 87 octane. Runs like a MFF.

Only use 91 grade gasoline.. 93 grade gasoline has ethanol in it .. bMWs do not like ethanol .. if you stay in the state that does not offer 91gasoline do not to buy a BMW or you going to be placing valve stem’s ethanol dries out the whole system
