Castrol GC 0w-30

Can someone look at the attached pictures and tell me if this Oil is the German Formula of Castrol 0w=30? that most people are puting into their N54s.
or this is not it.
Reason I am confused or unsure, becasue I thought the product was supposed to be Sytec, NOT Edge, but all other specs are there including LL01.

Car is 2007 335i Sedan with approx 67miles.

Thanks in advance.

No, you're better to check for everything to make sure you're getting the right thing. No apologies necessary.

Bottle looks different, but all the important specs are correct.
