They're playing hard and fast with specifications there. You can't meet A5/B5 with a HTHS of 3.66.
It appears as it is more than just "hard and fast", it looks like outright lies. They are using the official approval wording/language for those Mercedes-Benz approvals but the oil does not show up on the BeVo listing. If that is the case then it is the worst kind of obfuscation possible. And what the heck is a "Porsche" approval?? I wouldn't believe a word of that PDS nor anything else that company says.

It's interesting that a dealership would use an oil that doesn't have the API Starburst and doesn't meet SN/SN+. I'd leave it in for about 3K miles, then dump it. And hold onto your receipt... I'd even consider taking it back and telling them to use a synthetic that does and/or make sure you get a survey and mention this....
