Warm, not hot. I stocked up on 2 (4.7L) jugs of 5w-30 of these for 33 bucks a pop. With levy and taxes probably 80 bucks for 9.4L. I don't know if there's an advantage to buying them in 1L jugs instead of 4.7L jugs, but per L this is only a warm deal IMO.

You can only get the German ones in 1L bottles if your car needs it (since qualifications are different for each grade), it is a pretty good deal... but US is about 2/3 of the price.

I've never seen 0-40 at the walmart in Niagara Falls, NY. If anyone knows where I can find some here for sub $9 I'd be ecstatic.

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.

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.

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.

Not a duch a good deal, WM Canada has the 4.73 Synpower for sub $20 ...

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.

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)

Go with big metal one like the one princess auto sells.. since it uses external air, you connect your 1/4 NTP to it and supplies it air.. when the meter say good to go, you turn off the valve and it sucks. It is much faster and metal parts don't break down like plastics one invariably do. I got mine for $80 when it went on sale.. The difference is night and day.. it takes 15min to evacuate 8L in the sump vs 1hour (2 repumping). Much less mess, since their is a place to put in the dip stick evacuator (the plastic gets coated with oil in Mityvac etc).

Harbor Freight sells the same one too but in green. Use their 20% off coupon at the back of any "guy" magazines.

Mityvac is cute and all.. after a few years the seals go and can get pretty gross.

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.

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?

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.

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.
