After countless oil research on this forum and others and dealers, use 0w40 if you live in the snow. Use 5w40 if you live in warm conditions otherwise you are going to get premature cam, lifter and cam adjuster wear. I live on the coast of South Africa and 13 degrees Celsius is the coldest we get on average so adjust your oil to your climate. There's no one oil that fits all AMG's. I use Liqui Moly 5w40 or Petronas 5W40. AMG specked 0w40 in the beginning then they found out they made an F,up and changed it to 5w40 here. Speaking from experience so you can take my word for it.

What if I live in Vancouver, Canada. 0w40 or 5w40?

You should go 0w40 because you live in a colder climate. The 0w40 oil is thinner than the 5w40 oil when cold, and will therefore be able to get into the top of the engine quicker upon cold start for better lubrication.
