Anything that says "energy conserving" on the back is BAD. That means it contains friction modifiers which will make your wet clutch useless.
I actually use Mobil1 15w-50 synthetic which is a car oil! I've been using it in my '05 636 for about 10,000 miles with great results. A friend of mine also uses it in his '05 and he's got over 20,000 on his bike!
I'm not sure about in the UK but here in the US you can go to WalMart and get a 5qt container of Mobil1 for less than $20.
As for the filter I use a Purilator PureOne #PL14610 it's about an inch longer than the OE filter, but fit's nicely between the rad hose and engine.
Purilator PureOne performs better than most others in all the test results I've looked at. And they are very available and inexpensive here.
