can someone explain me something.
On BMW official website mobil 5w30 is not in the recommended list

http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Conte...ngineOils.aspx

"BMW Long-life rating LL-01 Approved Synthetic Oils for the US Market:

Castrol Syntec European Formula SAE 0W-30
Mobil 1 SAE 0W-40
Pennzoil Platinum European Formula Ultra SAE 5W-30
Valvoline SynPower SAE 5W-30"

why???

the user manual recommend castrol oil 5w30 but that oil is not an LL01
http://www.castrol.com/liveassets/bp..._Sept_2011.pdf

So which one should I use?
