This is a 97 Miata that we have owned from new. It is my wife's driver and sees 70% city use and short trips. The only unusual item here is that this is an 11 month sample to get to 4.5K. Oil filter is Denso 150-1011. I had a lifter tick (hydraulic adjusters) when cold with RTS (the previous fill) and this was fixed with the M1 0w-40. The last sample I ran was at 10/2008 and showed a slight coolant leak that prompted me to replace the head gasket. No coolant leak this time! No additives in the oil, I run MMO in every gas fill (93 octane).

Get TBN tested next time and you'll see that this oil can be run to 10k miles easily, and more.
