new oil option at getbmwparts!

so I recently was shopping for some maintenance items at getbmwparts.com and noticed that they had a new option for oil for the e46 m3 (which I used to have) but that option was unavailable for the e9x m3 which I currently have. I noticed this last night and emailed them and Evan over at getbmwparts already had it fixed by this morning and now its available!

http://www.getbmwparts.com/partlocat...egoryID=104047

it is the "non bmw" branded Castrol 10w60. literally the only difference is that it's missing a bmw sticker for otherwise identical oil.

it's about 2 bucks cheaper per bottle though!

free shipping still applies.

I've been using the Edge TWS from Turner; I believe it's the same stuff, but some VOAs have shown some differences that are probably negligible.

Sorry, man. I meant ECS tuning:

I order so much from turner, it's always my first spit when folks ask.

oh, looks like you're located in sactown. im in socal.

ECS is 150.74 shipped for me and getbmw is 135 even.

I guess before getbmw offered the non-bmw version, ecs was a better choice because it was 160 for the "bmw brand" at getbmw before.
