'I have no interest in Castrol, but in my lifetime I have met several guys 

that have worked in oil company labs, all fo them said Castrol was better 
than  any oil they tested including their own. None of them worked for Castrol.

Just an FYI.

I, too, have no dog in the oil brand fight, but my first summer job in 1967
was as gofer for a Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Jaguar
(and occasional new Ferrari, Ford GT, and 427 Cobra special order)dealer, and
the shop used Castrol exclusively. That how I got into the habit of using it.

My Tiger is engineless at this point, but my '87 BMW 325iS uses BMW 15-40(made
by Castrol), my '00 325CI coupe specifies BMW brand or Castrol Syntec(I use
the Syntec at home).

Volkswagen specifies Mobil 1 for my '07 Golf/Rabbit, and that is the one 
I make to using Castrol. Admittedly, it has more to do with being a long term
habit for me than research.
