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.
