BTW, my engine oil filler cap has "BMW Recommends Castrol " stamped on it.

This is strange for at least three reasons:
1) It's weird to see a blatant advertisement stamped on a non-racing engine
2) Some Castrol oils are (apparently) not BMW approved (they're not LL-01)
3) BMW-approves motor oils made by other manufacturers

Is there a good reason "BMW Recommends Castrol" is stamped on the oil-filler cover?

Are any other blatant advertisements stamped on any other part?
