I use castrol but iv been hearing a lot about how great motul is latley. Iv mostley heard this from my buddies that drive riced civics, nissan sentra se R's and the like, so I havent paid too much attention to them nor belived that Motul would be good for my car. Plus is pretty expensive Does anyone know if this stuff is actually that good?

Used to use Mobile 1, now get Castrol 5w50 because I can get it cheaper.
Still prefer the colour of the Mobile 1, stay's clean between oil changes, Castrol seems to always turn darker, almost black right away.

I have to use the TWS Castrol, but if I didn't, I would use Mobil 1. Its great product, readily available everywhere, and its not too $$$.
