It was in service for just over 6k miles, on my LR3. Used VWB 5w30, this time switched to Maxlife 5w30 and put another Wix on. The new one is black, old was white and I think before that I had a black one on it.
Nothing really interesting. No cuts or anything and the ADBV was nice and soft.
Loc: The Old North State
Looks excellent at 6k miles.
As for can color, wouldn't give it much thought. When the newer 5/7356 was introduced (for Honda and others) it started as white in color for some time, then changed to the current (last purchase) black can. The 5/1356 it superseded was and is still a black can.
