First time I've done this. 2017 Giulia 2.0 with about 49k miles, original owner for last five years. Pretty gentle on the car, lots of 15-30 mile drives on this sample. Oil degradation data within ECM stated 37% life remaining. MO-339 filter.

Looks really good! You could ask BS how many samples make up the Universal Average results to get an idea of how solid the UA are, but I agree, the iron and copper results are outstanding. I'm not sure what Mopar's virgin viscosity is for their 0W30, but if it's on the lower end of the spectrum, that could explain some of the shearing.

Very thin oil for a 30 but still excellent wear numbers. Run-in is clearly long ago
even though Cu is marginally elevated but that's beyond the scope of that low
precision analysis.
For subjective reasons personally I'd go for 5W-30 or 0W-40 and extend OCI to
at least 10.000 km/6.000 mls. Objectively retain that oil and extend OCI anyway.
