AFAIK it's good if your tracking the car(works well when the engine is running hot) but not for daily driving.

The 300V 15w-50 is the only oil that's equal in performance to the factory Castrol TWS 10w-60. The Castrol flows better at low temperatures.

Have you tried redline? I hear very good things about it. Not cheap, but may be worth it..

Motul recently put out a 20W60 300V product, how might that hold up in the S65?

I would think quite well, as long as the climate conditions warrant 20w.

Motul doesn't have 10/60 20/60 is an option as well as 15/50. I'd certainly like to find out more specifics, but the use chart in the manual is down in the car, in the garage, away from my current location.

oh ok... then would 15w50 be better than 20w60? From my knowledge the first number 15 or 20 is just for cold weather... im in socal so that isn't an issue... and 50 and 60 is basically hot viscosity? so if i track a lot 20w60 would be better and if not 15w50 is better?
