Where do you buy your Castrol TWS 10w-60 Oil?

Looking for the best price to buy the oil, thank you.

Don't waste a ton of time and energy on this. Even the best price will be only marginally better than the normal dealer, so just find a choice that works for you and move on.

Ask your dealer if they have a "oil change kit" for the e9x M3s. I ended up saving 20 dollars without my CCA discount.

Tischer bmw or getbmwparts.com or trademotion sells an oilchange kit. The price works out to about as good as you will get anywhere once shipping is factored in. If you can buy at a local dealer for the same price, that would be easier, but dealer prices vary.

+1. Just keep your eye out for someone running a special and order a few changes worth of oil.

The lengths we will go to to save 10$ a year

With my CCA discount at my dealer I pay about $12 a liter. Don't think there is much savings to be had online over that deal. I'd check with your dealer first and see if they offer a BMW CCA discount. Mine is 15% off all parts/accessories, supplies, and purchases from the boutique.

I think dealer list is $14.50 per liter, so 15% off that would be a pretty good price.

My dealer told me no to CCA discounts on oil, since it's not a BMW product. I think they're just full of it, but they've always had this policy.

I buy mine from either ECS Tuning or gbmwparts as oil change kits...

In Germany, die Dealer asks about 25-30€/l which is 30-35USD per liter which sucks.

Petrol stations also sell TWS at 30€ / bottle.

So we mostly buy online for about 12€/l which is OK.
