Default Castrol Syntorq LTŪ 75w85w GL-4

Does anyone know of a local place to get Castrol Syntorq LTŪ 75w85w GL-4 cheaper than the stealership?

There's a lot of GL-4 lubes out there and they manufacturers all say they're the same as castrol. But only Castrol is recommended by the manufacturer. And even on Mobil's website it says this:

Amsoil is the only other brand that guarantees it in an NV4500 and it's $50 cheaper. But since it will get changed once every eleventy billion miles, I'll just spend the extra $50 and get what the manufacturer recommends and what doesn't void warranties.

I've used the Amsoil with good results. Had the oil guru here at work look into it for me and said it was a good substitute.
