My 2 cents to you is not to use Castrol. I used to be a castrol fan and then switched because it was breaking down so quickly(specially because of the way I drive, WIDE OPEN
). BMW and other mechanics that I know here in Germany recommended for my E30 Mobil-1 10W40 synthetic and it doesn't become drinking water by the time my oil change is due around every 4 mos or 3000 miles. On the light you can reset that yourself if you want. I reset mine every time I do the oil change and when I tune it up.
