Would it be Mobil 0-40 or Castrol 0-40?

The Mobil 1 for sure. Simply personal preference though. I have used it for years and never had a oil related failure. Pretty good stuff really. Get it on Amazon and save a little money.

Castrol Edge 0W40 is my choice, I’ve been using Castrol synthetics since the ’90s, they were called Formula RS and Formula R back then, and before that it was Castrol TXT.

My other choice would be Shell Helix Ultra 5W40, which I believe is call Pennzoil Platinum Euro where you live. It carries all the OEMs BMW LL-01, MB 229.5, Porsche A40, etc

Nothing wrong with M1, but it has always been over priced in my local market, over $100 for 5L. I can get the SHU for about half of that, and it is the top shelf Shell product.

To be honest, my fave oil right now is Castrol Edge 5W30 A3/B4, it carries MB 229.5 and BMW LL-01.

Compared to M1 0W40, they both have a HTHS of 3.6 cP and they both carry about 1000 ppm ZDDP.

It also regularly comes on sale around me, I’ve picked some up for as low as $30 for 5L.
