What is your driving style, climate, habits, terrain, etc that would cause you to need a better oil?

There are boutique oils that may be considered "Better" but, do you really need more?

What you are doing sounds good to me and I think others will agree. I myself prefer Quaker State & Pennzoil synthetic oils. However, you can experiment with other brands of 5W30 synthetic oils that are available in your area.

Mobil 1 ESP is one of the best oils on the market, if you have access to it, use it.

That's a turbodiesel? I'm guessing low saps specs? Your oil would be one of the top choices for that, and you want to be careful to stay in low saps. I would stay put.
