M3 E92 DCT - Oil Confusion - Castrol Edge Professional

M3 E92 DCT - Oil Confusion - Castrol Edge Professional

Hi All,

Im confused about the oil. I think some re branding, or re-labeling is going on at Castrol or something.
I can't find this particular bottle on the internet anywhere to know if its OK for my M3.

Castrol Edge Professional
Boosted with Titanium FST
TWS 10W-60

**Picture attached**

Its for full oil service, not just top up - is it OK?

It's labeled/marketed differently depending on your country/region and even the specific channel you get it through. Edge Professional, for example, is only at dealers and service shops. They just relabel it for auto parts stores.

And yes, it's fine. Easiest way to verify is to get the part number/SKU on the bottle and then look it up on the Castrol website -- the TDS/PDS is identical.

Thought something like that.

Thanks for the confirmation.
