This car just keeps turning in outstanding UOAs, but oil consumption is trending north. The prior two samples were M1 0w-40. Switching to M1 High Mileage didn't seem to help. Filter on this go around was and is a Wix XP. That filter is still in place as I figure it should easily handle 12k miles.

Impressive silicon numbers keeping wear down. What kind of air filter is being used? Keeping the engine from ingesting dirt is key to low wear. Modern air intakes/filters can handle lots of load before causing running issues. Many people change air filters way to early. They actually filter better somewhat loaded up...to a point.
