Anything rated SG which is what the T 4 is, should be good to go!

Yep, got a gallon jug in garage right now.
I worked for Mobil when Rotella T, Delo 400, and Delvac 1300 Super were battling for commerical application supremacy. I've used all three products for Oilhead crankcase oils in 15W-40.
Now: Rockster2, S1000R, K1300S
Then: R850R, R1100R, R1150R, Rockster1, R1200C, F800S, etc.

I remember one veteran of this site that was a very close friend--MikeCam. He had I think at least 5 and possibly 6 BMW's in his garage. Used Rotella 15/40 in all of 'em. Under $15 a gallon at Walmart.
