Ar they the same Castrol 10W60?

hello guys, I know this question have been discussed many times.

Forgive me the knowledge about the Castrol 10W60.

I am living in California.

There are the different bottle between American and european.

I bought a Castrol TWS 10W60 which is a little different with other Castrol TWS.
I am not sure if it can add on my M3 or not.

This is the oil I bought.

The O'Rielly's one looks correct.


Btw, the one on the left is the old TWS sold at dealerships between 2006 and 2010. There are lots of criticism for this oil. The one on the right is updated oil they sold between 2011 and 2013. This one has updated friction modifiers. Regardless, it's near impossible to find both versions today.

Weird, I've NEVER seen anything 10w60 at a brick-and-mortar auto parts store in this part of the country.
