Castrol SLX 0W-30 == Magnatec 5W-30?


When I bought my 325i a couple of years ago, the dealer mentioned that he used Castrol SLX 0W-30 Full Synthetic for the last service. Couldn't find SLX anymore in the shops but manual says I can use LL-01 or LL-04, so I topped up with Castrol Edge 0W-30(LL-01) and Edge 5W-30(LL-04) but the car is due an oil change soon. Intending to use Magnatec 5W-30 A3/B4 since it's LL-01 approved, is this the equivalent of the old SLX brand? And any issue with using Magnatec rather than Edge?
