Since my 2001 2.5 is filled at the factory with Castrol Synthetic oil and BMW dealers use the BMW "High Performance Engine" oil, I contacted Castrol by E-Mail and asked " what is the difference between BMW "High Performance" oil and the Castrol Syntec available at many retail locations". Their response was that the Castrol High Performance was the European version of their Syntec Full Synthetic Motor oil. They also mentioned that the Syntec is available in both Full Synthetic and Part Synthetic formulations. They also advised TO BE SURE to get the Syntec Full Synthetic for the BMW.
