ok.. so i went to BMW dealer and asked for 10w-60 oil.. it was like 8-10 bucks a bottle... I went to all the auto stores around.. like kragen and autozone.. but they dont have 10w-60.. they only have straight 60.. so i was wondering is there anywhere else you can buy 10w-60 motor oil?? :dunno: i know the car needs good oil.. but it costs like 3 times more than reg syn.. oil..

Dealer is the only source for Castrol 10w/60.
I've been paying just under $9.00 a liter for it, some have reported paying as much as $13.00 a bottle.
Swallow hard, and pay the man...

Only place in the US to get the oil is the dealer. I think Porsche dealers also carry it, but you think BMW prices are high. :)
MSRP is $8.95 per liter, and many dealers give some discount for BMW CCA membership. The two dealers I tend to use, one gives 25% discount, but marks things up. The other gives like a 14% discount, but from MSRP.
So I pay about $7.60 a liter.

Both Long Beach and Crevier offer 10% discounts to BMW CCA members, which gets you down to ~ $8/qt (Long Beach is a couple pennies cheaper). Shelly does the CCA discount, but not on oil.
