quote:The German Castrol Syntec 0W-30 that everbody has been buying at Autozone is the same as SLX. I believe this is Group IV/V? In some parts of Europe it has been replaced by SLX II which I believe to be a Group III oil? I dont know if anyone in Europe still gets SLX. I think its still being made in Malaysia as well?

Which do you guys think is a better oil? So Castrol still makes Formula SLX? I thought it was discontinued? or was it only discontinued in Germany and Australia and reformulated in Poland and Russia?

Originally posted by Quattro Pete: SLX has always been a shop product in Europe, and so is SLX LongTec. It was never sold at major retail outlets the magnitude of Wal-Mart, but could be found at select gas stations and Castrol distributors. I get my SLX from a local distributor in Warsaw, although he's usually not thrilled about people buying retail quantities from him. But I'm no pscholte - I don't have a hangar where I could store 154 liters of it at one time.
