This is the best one I have had yet. I do drive the car fast and under hard loads. Note that I do have an oil leak which caused 2 liters of replacement oil. This will be taken care of at 100k miles with the timing job. Oil was not changed, filter was.

Aluminum in this engine seems to wear a little higher than the norm...but I'm not sure what the "normal" amount of aluminum wear is for your engine. Other than that, looks good.

I've heard that the VOA of this oil has had 3 PPM of aluminum.


#1 on that UOA is a 25 mile run to see what I carried over. Before that oil I had an EGR that was stuck open, so I had some major wear issues. I seemed to have got that under control. I finally blocked it off.
