Based on the above picture of the BMW oil the specs are SAE 5W30, API Service: SL/CF; ACEA A3/B3.
So which of those Castrol oils matches the above?

SYNTEC 0W-30
API SL/CF. ACEA: A3, B3, B4. VW 502 00, 505 00, 503 01. BMW Longlife-01. MB 229.1, 229.3. Porsche approved.
The grade doesnít match, but API and ACEA specs do.

SYNTEC 5W-30
API SM, SL, SJ/CF. ACEA: A1, A5, B1, B5. GM 6094M, GM 4718M. Ford WSS-M2C929-A. ILSAC GF-4, GF-3, GF-2.
The grade does match but ACEA spec doesnít.
