Out PP 10W-30 and pure 1 at 7K
In amsoil 10W-30 / 30wt ACD and wix filter.
Should have never tried the PP in this VQ35DE. It drank it like water. This engine only likes 2 oils. Rotella T6 5W-40 and Amsoil ACD.

'95 BMW 318iC
146K car, 3K oil
Out: Maxlife Nextgen 10W-40, STP filter
In: Defy 10W-40, Purolator filter
This was the winter storage oil and went in last August.
I got the car out of the garage last Sunday and have driven it a couple of hundred miles since. I changed it today after driving home from work.
Before a certain mod shows up and tells me how wasteful such a short run was, the OM actually recommends an oil and filter chnage both prior to and after storage.
This seems a little silly, since the oil doesn't suffer just sitting in the sump, but that's what BMW recommended in 1995.
