car was driven hard this time, lots of pulls and general assholery. Currently filled with Castrol 0w-40, we'll see how it performs

So you returned to the Jug that costs half as much your next UOA is going to be interesting.

I was figuring that as well. I was reminded of an old Subaru saying, “ silver and lead, she’s dead.”

No lead in the report but we hardly ever see silver numbers, especially that high.

We don't know the silver level of the previous UOA with a different make, so we'll have to wait & see till the next one comes in.
I sincerely doubt that that was caused by LM

As others said we need more data to establish a trend but it's odd, VQ's and VR's aren't known for bearing issues unless making big horsepower and torque, 550+. Are you running the stock map or is the car tuned? If the car is stock I'd run the Castrol this time but going forward run either Redline 0w40 or Mobil1 FS. Both have long track records of working well under hard use in the VQ and VR engines. If it is tuned to make big HP, speak with the tuner both about their recommendations and maybe about checking their work, then start saving for the "popped my engine fund".

The Oil used must be the "Leichtlauf High Tech", right?

I have had great luck with Castrol 0W-40 A3/B4 oil in my Subaru’s. I hope it works well for your application. Lived in Germany for three years, found Liqui-Moly to be very average.

GZRider I don’t agree that Mobil 1 0W-40FS is a good way to go for a motor that might have a problem. Too light at 12.9 cSt. I would use Redline or AMSOIL if the Castrol run still shows high Silver.

hopefully this was a fluke, if theres a bearing problem no oil can fix that. we'll see whats happening in few thousand miles.
