For iron you have 5ppm wear in just under 5k miles (4725) that's very good.

Also look at that zinc 987 ppm, that's very strong for an ILSAC oil. The moly is good at ~ 100 ppm too.

If this was sampled in 2012, it must have been the legendary Ultra and not Ultra Platinum Pure Plus?

Mainly habit and peace of mind.

That and the engine in this car specifically is known for beating up oil.

Yes, I think it was the original iteration of Ultra.
