I think the site should give badges for those who try longer oil change intervals. :P

Here's a look under the oil fill cap. Definitely interested in comments on that.

Great low metals numbers.... I wonder what the TBN would have been.

Only one comment needed: it looks flawless inside.

That cam lobe looks scored to me. Were the other UOA's with M1?

Are you implying that running M1 EP for only 66% of its rated mileage should earn you a medal?

Oil looks very clean for 10k miles. Our Mini turns its oil almost black within a couple thousand miles. I blame the French (the engine is half Peugeot).

More like 80% PSA haha!
My friend's Mini also turned oil dark very quickly. Don't like this engine.

No TBN frown At 10k intervals, something you should do.

You said the one in the middle which was tested at 36,700 miles is Castrol Magnatec. Seems to me those are though most impressive numbers of the three.

Run CM 10K and see what you get (I got sludge in 4K)
Would do Edge for 10k before Maggy

Take a better picture of that cam lobe. If it's scored, take it into the dealer, you should still be under warranty.

Just to dispel any nasty rumors, there's no scoring. I was more interested in whether that was more or less clean than average.
