Default Oil for B10 Biturbo, Fuchs 10W60

I found an alternative to the uber expensive Castrol 10W60 which is spec'd for the Biturbo along with many M-cars. Its Fuchs Titan Supersyn 10W60, and buying in bulk (20L pail) its much cheaper, <10$/litre.

I guess I have enough for 4 oil changes or 4 years

Any links or info on the oil? Any comparisons to the TWS 10w60?

I'm definitely intrigued...

Hard to say, it appears that there is lots of discussion on the M boards, but not a lot of conclusions.
