quote:The back of the bottle says made in Germany, and lists a bunch of specs like BMW Longlife, MB229.3, ACEA A3, etc. If you then go to the German Castrol site, you'll see they only sell one 0w30 oil that meets those specs, it's Formula SLX. In the specs for this oil, it lists it as being green. It's their only green oil. I've put this Castrol 0w30 oil in my sister's car, and it is indeed green! Without a doubt it's the same stuff. I should have the first oil analysis results in June, the oil will have about 6-7k on it at the time. This oil has very impressive specs, an HTHS of 3.6, a pour point of -78F and it's on the very thick end of a 30wt, at 12.1cst at 100c. I just hope it has moly in it!

Green oil?? Maybe its Shaeffers or made in Ireland
quote:Just like Royal Purple, the color changed as soon as I ran the engine and checked the stick. Schaeffer Oil is also green but when you check the stick it looks like the normal oil color after too.
