"German" Castrol, that being the 0W-40 weight oil now is LL-01 approved, not LL-04. Belgian Castrol, now 0W-30, is also LL-01 rated, not LL-04 rated. (US versions in both cases)

Not sure where you're seeing that either of these oils are LL-04 rated. Or are you talking about the versions of these oils bought/sold in Germany?
