Hey guys,

After searching for castrol and considering amsoil, i ve decided to call the local BMW dealer. Well guest what.....motorrad oil is cheaper than amsoil and Castrol.

So I m all good to dress the bike up again since I thorn it apart the moment I entered the garage to clean it and make it ready for the season

I know I m a bit crazy

@Derry , I'll throw the flag and call BS! Please prove me wrong; where are you getting K1600 synthetic oil from a BMW dealer for <$6.00 a quart?

Lolll

Those are canadian dollars but Castrol 10w50 was 17.00$ so I figured 5w40 was about the same. Amsoil 10w40 was 16.50$
So I called the dealer and asked.

He told me they have it in quart only at 15.00$ each

So I m going Thursday and if he told me wrong, I ll beat the sh....out of him In the back store

I ll let you know

Garage
Gunnert was quoting prices for Castrol on American Amazon so in Canada you are probably correct.
