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.
DMAX, they do have the LL-01 rating oil, that is what I used for my last oil change. Not sure if this link will show, but here goes http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...=no#fragment-4.
