Has anybody ever 'autopsied' one of these? How do they compare to Fram Ultra or Mobil 1 oil filters? Could these be run safely for 2 OCI's of let's say 8K each?

Well, it's a luxury car. The guarantee program only guarantees 50% residual value after 3 years. Plugging around on their resale value is in line with this number. So a $100k car in 3 years is worth ~$50k.

Use the cheapest dexos on sale for the full interval suggested by your OLM Pennzoil Gold synthetic blend is fine, and most likely the cheapest dexos. Walmart brand synthetic is good. A few times a year, Napa puts their house brand synthetic on sale
