Any BC UOAs to be forthcoming?

I just dumped mine out after 3500 miles (01 Jetta VR6 75k), should have done a UOA, but I didn't realize we didn't have any from BC. One thing I did notice was this oil got dark FAST compared to Mobil1 0w-40, and T&SUV 5w-40 that I'd been using before. Replaced it with Mobil1 5w-30, engine definately seems quieter and smoother with the M1.

Getting dark fast is probably a good sign. It means that the oil is doing its job of suspending metals and other crud. Isn't Syntec 5w-40 now made in the US?

Agreed. It seems Castrol was cleaning all the stuff out that Mobil coudn't touch. The new batches of Castrol 5w-40 are US made, at least at my local AZ.
