      Does anyone know if there is a place you can buy Castrol Professional OE at other than ECS, FCP Euro , Etc.? Or is it sold as another name at normal stores like Advanced Auto, O'Reily's, etc? Trying to save a few bucks if I can

      If I remember correctly, the one with the red cap is the true full synthetic.
      Like this one. I haven’t found it for sale in the US. Only in Europe.

      Why this oil vs. M1 or Castrol 0W40 (both have VW502.00 approval)? Both are available at Walmart for substantially less and according to the wisdom of the folks/nerds over on Bob is the oil guy (BITOG) both are higher quality.

      In my opinion, it’s just too thin a oil to run here in TX. Which is why i run 10-40.

      They are both 40 weight oils....the 0W gives you a higher-quality base stock and better start-up lubrication.

      It would only make sense right? But that’s not what the data shows. It is far more complex than just base stock.
