sorry for the confusion, meant all grades they stock though.

edit:

technically looking at the product sheet that actually is all the grades they make under the syntec and titanium labels.

That is a bit much to expect a niche grade of oil like that to be carried in most places.

The M-engine 10w-60 is only available through BMW.

I have a friend @ Castrol, her boss owns 2 M-cars and he can;t get it from work: BMW dealer or direct supplier only, unfortunately.

Tischer has the best shipped pricing on the oil change kits that I've found:

one week left on this. Thought $4.50/Quart for a name brand synthetic would get more attention. Guess not.

No 15w-40 either or I would be all over this with 8-9 qts mine takes. Might have to check the manual tonight though and see what other grades are appropriate for my climate

Not sure how it compares but Wal-Mart sells 5 gals of M1 for $25. So only $0.50 per qt difference, not a huge deal. Just IMO.

I do buy online and pickup in store. Reduces the time I'm in there. Plus I have about $600 in Wal-Mart gift cards from my credit card rewards. I believe ship to store is free. Or you could pay $13 more at Advance Auto Parts...

Syntech is not full synthetic oil - in my opinion.

Look it up, it's a type III - refined dino oil. It's good oil, but it can only be called synthetic in the United States - where there was a lawsuit and a stupid judge ruled in favor of Castrol.

it wasn't a ruling just for castrol it affected the whole industry. If being type 3 makes it non-synthetic to you then the Mobil 1 oil in the link above would follow suit. I think only 2-3 brands are refined from group 4 or 5. An engine in a daily commuter won't know the difference between a quality oil refined from group 3 vs one from group 4/5.

My wallet sure does though. Last time I checked they were running around $15/qt

Castrol doesn't make 10W-60 in Syntec or Edge.


I picked up 18 quarts of 5W-50, and 14 quarts of 0W-40. Flavors you can't get at Walmart (especially the 5W-50). I am not an M1 fan, and even though I understand the M1 0W-40 is one of the best oils on the market, I wanted to try the 0W-40. I need to send a sample into Blackstone and get a VOA on it, I don't think anybody has yet...

I stocked up the other day when I was in there. I bought 30 quarts for my car and need to stop back in to get 6 more so I am even on oil changes. That will cover me for 120k miles, or about two years.

Grabbed the 19 remaining 5w30 at Fairlawn, nj. If I have the Time to get to one of tr other locations I certainly will. The website was a POS over the weekend. Couldn't update or change quantities. Annoying
