10/40 can't be LL-01. I'd read Castrol added more LL-01s in its lineup, but don't think it's 10/40.

Just be careful people, 'Castrol' doesn't mean you can use it in your car, and you shouldn't just buy it by the two numbers...read the label and if it doesn't say "approved: BMW LL-01" you should keep looking. Although some oils might be fine, that designation assures you it is. Many oils degrade far too quickly, it seems, and won't protect your engine like you want it protected.
