I did not run the brake pads that long, and it's not my car. Some people don't change pads until the backing plates start scrubbing rotors, and some go until the backing plate is gone, and they are literally stopping on caliper piston and rotor.

Color is not a good indication of oil quality. Anything that meets the requirements spelled out in your owners manual will be fine for the full OCI suggested by it. Why are you using a 5w40 in Canada? Any synthetic 5w30 should meet your needs jus

just normal heavy varnish from too long with non-syn in that engine. If he wants to forget oil changes have him step upto something like m1 EP. That way when he forgets and his 5k oci becomes 9000miles... oil will hold up good.

if soot levels get too high and/or the detergent package is depleted... soot can clump and become abrasive. What were the actual results... excessive is kinda generic and open to interpretation.

Not sure you stated anywhere what your OCI is. I do 2x7.5k OCIs with a M1 filter on the wife's minivan. Not a Fram fan boy. I always find dirt and grit on their faceplates, right out of the box.
