The Engine Oil Question (SE used with no luck)

Gents I have a 99 540i.

Research indicates that 0-40 engine oil meets BMW Longlife 01 requirements. Mobile 1 indicates they sell this oil, but I can't seem to locate this oil anywhere in the GTA.

i) where can I purchase this oil from in the GTA (please don't say canadian tire, walmart, they don't carry it)?
ii) are there any alternative oil type and rating that you recommend that meet requirements?
iii) do people use the stealership to buy their oil and oil filter
iv) where do you guys purchase your oil filters from in the GTA other then the stealership?
v) what's the average cost per liter for engine oil...?

Thanks in advance,

Ps., please do share what type of engine oil and filter you've been using thanks.,
