Default Recommended motor oil for 500i 2011

Hello all,
BMW recommends several viscosities for my car's oil. I live in Alabama. I can't decide what would the best option be, among the ones listed by BMW: SAE 0-W40, SAE 0-W40, SAE 5-W40 or SAE 5-W30. Please help and indicate brand as well, if you could. Thank you!

Any brand full-synthetic of any of the recommended viscosities will do, as what BMW recommends. Just find the one that is cheapest when you need to do an oil change. Do change the oil between 6 and 10 K miles, however.
