I get it at a local place by me but it's pretty much the same price every where.

I have been using Liqui Moly 10/60 for passed 2 oil changes, not a single problem. And my car has been track and street driving.

Switched from TWS to this Liqui Moly oil, honestly in my opinion TWS was running hotter than this oil, after beating on my car with TWS, my oil temp gauge would go past 210 and with this oil it stays below 210 even when I beat on it (explains why a lot of track guys use it) plus it runs way smoother and idles smoother as well. I have 225k on my E46 M3 and not an issue with it so far. To each his own, everyone's car runs differently depending on mods and how they drive it, JUST USE WHATEVER YOU LIKE.

A 7 year old thread brought back to life lol. I've been using this on my car for 5 years now and I've had no issues with it.

These oil specs are public knowledge and depending where you live, and your driving style, pick an based on that. If it's winter where you see -20 regularly, you should probably use a lighter oil. If it's Florida where winter doesn't exist, use a thicker oil. My personal opinion is that Liquimoly is better than Castrol in terms of specs but that's just my opinion. I also drive my car very hard so the car hits 8200 rpm a few times(after the oil is close to temp of course). On top of this, I use Ceratec because I believe in its voodoo magic works. It reminds me of solid lubricants for gun barrels so I use it. At the end of the day, our 10W-60 options are very good in comparison to other weights. It's a more competitive field because it's so specialized and let me tell you, this is the pickiest car community.
