Switched to Castrol Edge 0w-40 after Mobil-1 0w-40 lost its BMW cert and I am glad I did after seeing this UOA: LINK Though not terrible, it's not what I would expect after only 4k miles.

Link to previous UOA can be found HERE

I like the Castrol 0w40 use it in my GTI. I change mine though every 5k miles or once a year, whichever comes first. Great Oil, Many here will agree. thumbsup

I buy mine at WallyWorld for $24 for a 5 qt jug. Cant beat that either...

Good to see Edge 0W40 and M1 0W40 side by side.

You car looks to be doing well.
