Dealesr here use Castrol TXT LL01 5W-30 exclusively for non M cars and will soon change to either the new Castrol SLX LL04 0W-30 or the soon to be introduced Castrol TXT LL04 5W-30
Cool - thanks for the info. Honda and Ford have gone to 5W-20, so nice to see that BMW is sticking with the 0W-30 and 5W-30.
