Below (Line #9) is my latest UOA for my 2016 Audi S3 with the EA 888 Gen 3 engine. Oil was dealer build, believe it to be Castrol 5W-40 oil. I have changed it out to Ravenol RSP 5W30 for this oil change. All looks to be falling within spec for wear when looked at PPM/1k miles. Fuel dilution went up a little, but car is also only being driven to work (7 miles) and now due to winter takes half of that for the oil to get up to full operating temp of 174*C

Looks solid. That is a fine engine.

~4,403 miles in eleven months? Might need some good driving!


PUP 0W-40
Total Quartz 5W-40
M1 5W-50

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Aren't iron and aluminium usually higher in earlier changes then go down? What am I missing?

Yeah with only having a 7 miles drive to work and not typically using the S3 on the weekend it does not get used often.

Yes, but PPM / 1k miels is not too far off the 5ppm number i find to be off and something amiss....also the engine is known to dump iron into the oil more than typical.
