JagGate, which dealer do you go to? $150 for an oil change including filter beats my dealer. Besides my car suffers cosmetic damage either outside or inside every time I visit my local dealer.

$150 is a great deal for a Full Synthetic oil change, plus oil filter plus labor on an ULTRA LUXURY CAR. Jag XJL v6 take over 7 QT. Any brand name Synthetic oil can cost $12 per quart, plus $30 filter. You got a good deal, my dealer charges $375 for my 2014 Jaguar XJL v6. I don't believe dealership should abuse and over Charge 3x the price, but at the same time I remind myself that Jaguars or any European Luxury car ARE NOT ECONOMICAL to run.

Correct, Local Jag Dealership: CASTRO EDGE PROFESSIONAL OE 5W-20 WWS-M2C925-A is the oil specs for 2014 Jaguar XJL V6. My local dealer sells it for $13.54 per quart. Expensive, but not terrible considering my local Auto store price is $8.64 for CASTROL EXTENDED PERFORMANCE 5W-20 WWS-M2C930-A & WWS-M2C945-A . Homest mechanics tell me it's ok to use for My Jaguar XJL V6, my dealership is in my way from work.

Local Auto Store: CASTROL EXTENDED PERFORMANCE 5W-20 WWS-M2C930-A & WWS-M2C945-A. Not the spect in Jag manual, but many in forum and many honest Jag technicians will agreed it's ok to use any synthetic 5w-20 in your Jag XJL v6 or V8

Castrol does not advise using Castrol oils adhering to WSS M2C945-A and say that the two specs are significantly different. Castrol does not agree with your info above and does not recognize that WSS M2C925-A is "superseded" by WSS M2C945-A and want to see something official from Ford or Jaguar confirming this info on letterhead.
Please advise what your source was for this information.
I'm trying to buy oil by the quart. I can find commercially available Castrol oil meeting the WSSM2C945-A spec. My local Jag dealers that have WSSM2C925-A only buy it in bulk and can't sell it to me by the quart.
