Maybe this info will elevate yours mood:

1 Liter bottle Castrol TWS 10W60 ........ 37.83 Euro (US $59.02)
4 Liter bottle Castrol TWS 10W60 ........ 124.00 Euro (US $193.46)
[Official BMW Invoice, Spain]

As I heared the price for oil in USA is around $10 for 1 Liter? Is it true?

Scheduled oil changes are included in the free 4 year maintenance plan, so you won't hear from people in the US for another month or two until people start changing their own oil; some won't wait until 15000 miles. I don't know how this is handled in other countries.

I haven't bought any for a few months, but it was US$8.95/liter. Probably gone up a little, I would guess, but not that much!

Sounds good what you have included oil changes under warranty...
Here in Spain we should pay about $170 for service and as I told about $445,94 for 9 liters of Oil.... Horrible...
And services in between too... every 7-8k miles...
