Maybe they pay BMW the most to recommend their product. Who knows

But I can tell you that higher quality oil is available.
I did not say Castrol is the best neither did anyone else, we are simply saying it is what BMW recommeds, and if you have used anything different and your engine fails your screwed!

true so use what ever bmw recommends up till the warranty date.
after that u better change the brand cuz seriously castrol suck. ask any real bmw technician.

e46 engine failures can result in many factors not just the oil u use.
15000 km interval? LOL! i bet you all have sludge building up in ur engine that can defintely cause engine failure.

you guys just listen to what ever m3forum.net tells you? fan boys...

Oil is oil. Royal Purple and Lubro moly are perfectly fine if not better. If you believe everything the dealer/BMW tell you...

use lubromoly racetech 10w60 instead. or royal purple 10w60 (more expensive)

this is the oil u want for your motors guys. castrol breaks down so fast its just marketing. ask any real master technician at ur bmw dealer. i did. and i know some of them. they wouldnt put that kind of oil in an m3 especially with 15,000 km interval ( dunno it in miles) 8000 km minimum or engine oil breaks down.
in the case of castrol oil. 2000km itll start breaking down lol.
Where do you get 10w 60 Royal Purple from? People will believe anything marketing tells them. If BMW recommended that you use a specific company's brand fuel I.e Shell , would everyone fill their car up with just Shell? I think not. As long as you use the correct viscosity as per BMW's specs, it doesn't matter what brand of oil you're using. In my E46 M3 I've been using ELF for the past 3 years. My car engine is fine.

All you people are retards! Everyone knows the e92 doesn't even have oil. It's got hundreds of tiny immigrants lubing your engine with sweat and tears.


Seriously though...ask a question like this on an online forum and you'll get 100 wrong answers.
