BMW's Oil Contradiction [Not an Oil Thread!!]
In its maintenance literature BMW recommends Castrol oil products for use in its motorcycle engines. However, the Spectro Oil company produces BMW brand (labeled) oil. It seems paradoxical that they would recommend the consumer use one product and then endorse another item by wrapping the BMW label around it.
Personally, I believe that both Castrol and Spectro are excellent and equal products, so this is not an "Oil Thread" about oil quality or personal oil preference.
My questions: what is BMWs rationale for furnishing this conflicting information? Is Castrol somehow connected to Spectro?
