All Mobil1 on Part Source / Canadian Tire / Wal-Mart shelves = garbage
All Castrol Syntec in general = garbage

*garbage = semi-synthetic, i.e. worse than BMW intended for the car to run on.

I heard that rumor too and used to believe it, but they carry different types. The "high mileage" etc Mobil1 are semi-synthetic. The synthetic is synthetic.

EDIT: if you don't believe me, here's the Mobil1 product line. The 2nd one is the expensive one you find in Partssource, CT, Walmart etc. Which one on the list is the non-garbage one:
