There is a big list of BMW approved oils. Far more than BMWNA has listed.
There is a BMW assembly plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. I think they assemble the X series now, as they moved Z4 production back to Germany.
Now they use Castrol as FF. Not the German Castrol 0w-30 either.
So, why is it that I can buy Made in Germany 0w-30 European Formula at my local Auto Zone, Advanced Auto, or Pep Boys.
Just how does it get here??????
The Castrol oil at the dealerships is rebadged TXT. And I think it's made in Europe. Never see it at either the three stores above or NAPA or National Auto.
So just how does it get here???????????
