Where to get Mobil 1 0w40?

I read a thread saying Mobile 1 0w40 is best for an e36. I went to Canadian Tire and they didn't have it. Where can I get this oil? Or maybe a different brand of oil that is good? What about conventional oil, what brand and blend should I use for that? Thanks.

136k. I found that mr. lube carries it but they charge 8.xx for one litre. Anywhere else sell this stuff, preferely in larger bottles and cheaper.

How's 10w40 for our car and how's 5w40 if that exist.

I've seen 0W40 at both Canadian Tire and Walmat, but only in litre bottles.

Why do you want to go so thin?
