Castrol EDGE Sport 10W-60 for M-Power

I know the correct Engine Oil are Castrol TWS 10W-60 and Castrol EDGE 10W-60. But I saw there's a store in Japan saying Castrol EDGE Sport 10W-60 can be use for M-Power! Is it true?

EDGE 10w-60 = Castrol TWS
EDGE Sport is a different formulation.

IIRC..TWS available via BMW dealerships is Ester bases whereas the Castrol 10w-60 available retail is PAO base. The TWS is no joke.
