Need oil for 2002 M3
 
Does anybody know where I can order a case of 10W60 API SJ/CF Synthetic Motor oil for My 2002 M3. Thanks,
:tongue:

Sorry to say bro, but I've only seen 10/60 at the dealer, or at performance shops that cater to BMW/Merc/Porsche. I've went to the local AutoZones, PepBoys, etc, and haven't found any. Good thing my salesman is cool, and gave me a couple bottles for free. :D

That's a bummer! I just assumed that Checker, PepBoys or AutoZone would carry it. Has ANYBODY found it there?

Where do you get the oil from for $8.10?

The BMW dealer is the only one that sells it. The oil is made by Castrol. I email Castrol and they confirmed that currently only the dealer sells the oil because besides racing cars only a few production cars in the market use that type of oil. I also email Mobil 1 and Valvoline and they replied saying that they do not offer that type of grade.

My 3 local BMW dealer sell the litre for $10.00. There are few dealer selling the oil at $8.50 but with shipping and handling it comes out to more than $10.00.

I just want to point out that Castrol TWS Motorsport 10W-60 is the only approved motor oil for the M3 so stick to BMWs recommendation!

That is not so. Here is the email I got from BMW replying to my question about which oil is approved for the M3:

I am with BMW of North America, LLC and your Owners' Circle inquiry has been forwarded to me for a response. BMW's approved oils used to top off are: Castrol Synthetic, Mobil 1 Synthetic, and Valvoline High Performance Synthetic with a weight of SAE 10W-60.

If you have further questions or concerns, please contact us through the website or at 1-800-831-1117.

Thank you for contacting BMW.

The only approved oil IS Castrol TWS Motorsport 10W-60. Oil quality is so much more then just the oil weight. See also the oil label in the engine compartment.

Below is a print-out from the TIS. I wouldn't trust those customer relations people too much...!

OK, OK, OK, RSC & srcstc,
You win!!! I WILL NOT blow up my engine or void my warranty by putting those inferior, cheap ass Valvoline or Mobile 1 synthetics in my M baby.
Actually it's a moot point because I can't find anyone who sells the stuff anyway. Looks like it's nothing but the OFFICIAL stuff for me. Long live my (2nd) engine!!!
