And everything else they sell. So things that will need to be replaced multiple times (fluids, filters, gaskets, spark plugs, etc) and things that fail somewhat often (power steering line, scratches on interior pieces) I buy from them.

You're right, I didn't look hard enough.

That just blows my mind! I love ECS, but this is some serious marketing strategy here :-) Thank you for letting me know guys!
BTW, I used either of Castrol or BMW oils and did not have any problem and have not noticed any significant difference. Oil temp maybe, but so small so it is hard to tell. I prefer BMW oil filters, so I usually buy kits from ECS that come with those and are on sale. I guess that might change soon :-)

You can refill an oil quart/gallon container or a coolant container. They are not discharged from an aerosol can under pressure. So no.
