Agreed, but your observations are correct.
Cars I have changed to synthetic, specifically Mobil 1, seem to run smoother
and quieter after 2-3 oil changes.
The former S500 coupe was a good example of this. It had a mild lifter tick at
idle that was not due to leaking oiler tubes, as it often is in the M119
engine. After a couple of changes with M1 the lifter tick disappeared, never
to be heard again.
