Sorry to say bro, but I've only seen 10/60 at the dealer, or at performance shops that cater to BMW/Merc/Porsche. I've went to the local AutoZones, PepBoys, etc, and haven't found any. Good thing my salesman is cool, and gave me a couple bottles for free. :D

That's a bummer! I just assumed that Checker, PepBoys or AutoZone would carry it. Has ANYBODY found it there?

The BMW dealer is the only one that sells it. The oil is made by Castrol. I email Castrol and they confirmed that currently only the dealer sells the oil because besides racing cars only a few production cars in the market use that type of oil. I also email Mobil 1 and Valvoline and they replied saying that they do not offer that type of grade.

My 3 local BMW dealer sell the litre for $10.00. There are few dealer selling the oil at $8.50 but with shipping and handling it comes out to more than $10.00.

I just want to point out that Castrol TWS Motorsport 10W-60 is the only approved motor oil for the M3 so stick to BMWs recommendation!

That is not so. Here is the email I got from BMW replying to my question about which oil is approved for the M3:

I am with BMW of North America, LLC and your Owners' Circle inquiry has been forwarded to me for a response. BMW's approved oils used to top off are: Castrol Synthetic, Mobil 1 Synthetic, and Valvoline High Performance Synthetic with a weight of SAE 10W-60.

If you have further questions or concerns, please contact us through the website or at 1-800-831-1117.

Thank you for contacting BMW.

The only approved oil IS Castrol TWS Motorsport 10W-60. Oil quality is so much more then just the oil weight. See also the oil label in the engine compartment.

Below is a print-out from the TIS. I wouldn't trust those customer relations people too much...!

OK, OK, OK, RSC & srcstc,
You win!!! I WILL NOT blow up my engine or void my warranty by putting those inferior, cheap ass Valvoline or Mobile 1 synthetics in my M baby.
Actually it's a moot point because I can't find anyone who sells the stuff anyway. Looks like it's nothing but the OFFICIAL stuff for me. Long live my (2nd) engine!!!
