A friend of mine goes to the dealership for synthetic oil changes. I'm anxious to know what company makes the BMW dino/synthetic oil. Also, is there a thread on this site that says what oils are behind the re-packaged containers at the dealerships? ie (Toyota Motor oil= Exxon) Thanks!

"BMW recommends Castrol". I recall seeing the same slogan on Mini's, Volvo's and Jags. However, it is not Syntec 5-30, but rather a proprietary A3-rated 5-30 made by Castrol NA in NJ. I'm assuming the addative package is different to allow for this and BMW LL (Long Life)/10k mi. drain specs.

Made by Castrol, and its probably imported from Europe. BMW HP Synthetic is known as "Softec TXT Plus" over there.
