Blackstone Oil Analysis - 17,589 miles

Here is the Blackstone oil analysis from my most recent oil change. Not good results which is disappointing. I did not do an analysis at my last change and wish I had.

Analysis at 17,589 miles

Post it up on BITOG and see what the guru's think. (If you have already I'd be curious to see the link...)

Have you just been using the OEM BMW oil so far?

What mileage did you perform your last oil change? I'm guessing somewhere between 10,000 to 11,000 miles?

Doesn't Mobil 1 make a 0W40 that's LL-01 rated also?

Does the car see a lot of really cold weather starts?

I am in Cincinnati, Ohio so it sees fairly mild winters (nothing I would call really cold weather starts).
