Yes, regular price. I prefer Mobile 1 0w40 over Castrol 0w30 in bimmers.

What type of vacuum extractor do you have? I'm looking at a mityvac 7201. I just gotta get around picking one up from the states.jabela wrote: ↑Yes, regular price. I prefer Mobile 1 0w40 over Castrol 0w30 in bimmers.
Autozone has it even cheaper plus a free oil filter.
I do my own oil changes. It's super easy, especially on BMWs with oil filters on the top. With a vacuum extractor, you don't have to get under the car and you don't get dirty.

Not a duch a good deal, WM Canada has the 4.73 Synpower for sub $20 ...Pseudo Nim wrote: ↑US is evil. I was in Watkins Glen and the Advance Auto Parts there had a special of 5W30 jugs including a free oil filter - besides being $8 off. So $32 got you 5L of Syntec Titanium 5W30 and an oil filter, which is by itself $10-$20 depending on your car. I ended up buying like 10L of oil, and my friend needed something like 8L per oil change so he bought something bordering on 24L. AAP was instantly out of stock on 5W30 and 5W40.

Non of the Royal Purple is BMW qualified which voids your drivetrain warranty.. especially for those who owns the 3.0L N54 turbo engine.. since it is now on extended warranty.BTW, the Royal Purple, which kicks both Castrol 0-30 and Mobil 0-40 behinds is on sale at Advance Auto for 7.49 - the best deal ever (it sells for $15 at CT)

My Audi takes 5w40 and the manual specifically states Castrol. The bottle of Castrol in this weight says "MB, BMW, VW, Porsche approved" and I can get this oil at Canadian Tire, Walmart and other "conventional stores". Are you saying it is lying?djredhat wrote: ↑Plus op is talking about the REAL Synthetic which is made in Germany, not the US one that is falsely advertised as "fully Synthetic" ... In conventional stores, there are only 2 really fully synthetics - the 0-30 Castrol and 0-40 Mobil - just look at the back on the label, it says MB, BMW, VW, Porsche approved and it's made in Germany.

Oops on my part, I missed the 0W30 part, but still - this is splitting hairs. Bobistheoilguy wrote extensively on motor oils and although the "German" 0W30 is certified for some brands and not others, the BMW manual specifically states 5W30 Castrol - which is NOT made in Germany - which is the appropriate oil for the car. In the end, as long as you change your oil often, it really makes no difference - and the 0W part is viscosity when cold anyway, so while it may be more useful in colder temperatures, throughout the year it will make no difference with the 5W.djredhat wrote: ↑Not a duch a good deal, WM Canada has the 4.73 Synpower for sub $20 ...

That's quite false. Although it's true that none of the Royal Purple is officially certified by BMW, it won't necessarily your warranty, since assumably you go to BMW for your FREE oil changes anyway at the required intervals - and nothing is better for your car than changing oil often as long as it's the right type. Also, N54 engines are FAR from being on extended warranty - the last builds of the 335's were in February 2010, so assuming delivery within 6 months, that's like .... end of 2014 for regular warranty. The N55 didn't start deliveries until the fall of 2009.
