It's no BMW extended interval approved.
The proper Mobil 1 is 0W40, but I burned oil with it.
Castol 5W30 seems to be ACEA5 approved too and should work. it's $26.xx at Walmart in a 5Q jug. Mobil 0W40 is about the same, but will drop to $22.xx sometimes in a jug.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
