Describe the problems you had.
I think people could have different experiences of the same product, so some might agree,
some will disagree.
That poor quality reply to a very reasonable question damages your
credibility. Why is Castrol not good? There must be a reason..
In the case of Castrol in the US, they sell an enormous range of products
varying from bad to excellent.
If you look at the "Castrol Syntec" line, for instance, you will see that
all of the different viscosities are actually totally different formulations.
The 5W-40 meets the current BMW specs and is a "true synthetic" oil by
European standards... the 5W-50 has a different base oil and could not be
sold as a synthetic in Europe although it's considered a synthetic oil by
the FTC here in America.
Unfortunately something similar happens even with the low-cost GTX line of
oils.... different service specifications at the different viscosities,
and then they sell some other variants like "GTX High Mileage Oil" which
in fact are almost completely unrelated and have a very different additive
package to them.
