I'm gonna call shenanigans. Nobody has ever been able to prove that anything 
has changed with M1. The samples I took last year look just like the ones I 
took in 2006 and say the oil is good to at least 10k in my 190D.

Loads of people are running extended changes with M1, you want to spend a whole 
bunch of time changing oil be my guest but I prefer to drive the thing...

Did you know that stuff is not really synthetic anymore, it's just group 3 base 
stock. Better off using delvac 1 Dino because you should not go extended oil 
changes with m1 anymore
