Does anyone use German Castrol 0w30?

Does anyone use German Castrol 0w30? I have been using this oil for years in my 2001 LS1. Just wondering if anyone is using this oil.

AutoZone is the only one that sells it. It only comes in 0W30 but works great in LS1's. The price has gone up and I am switching to Castrol Edge 5W30 and O'Relly's has it on sale with a Mobil 1 filter.
