Petronas syntium 10w60

any opinion about petronas engine oil?

in my country (Korea), many M users use this engine oil.

I've recently changed my e92 M3's oil with this one and ran about 2k and the major difference is that the oil consumption is almost zero compared to castrol edge 10w60, which I had to add 1 quart of oil every 2000-3000miles.

i made a search about petronas on but there isn't any thread.

any opinions??

I haven't seen this oil in the USA. I don't believe it is available here.
