1) Castrol EDGE Professional TWS Motorsport SAE 10W-60 Synthetic Engine Oil, BMW part number 07 51 0 009 420
2) Castrol Edge Professional OE 5W30 Synthetic Engine Oil BMW part number 07 51 0 037 195

The first part tells you that only LL-01 oils may be used in the S65 engine, and the second part tells you that out of all the LL-01 oils, only the two enumerated oils are approved.
I agree and mentioned this earlier as well. I definitely think it reads like this. LL-01 approved oils only and of those one of the two below. It also doesn't mention which engines take 5w30 or 10w60.
