Blackstone report on my 2011 M3...

OK, got my report this evening on my Sept 2010 built 2011 car and overall I'd say things are looking very good! The car has 42k miles on it and this is my first oil analysis. Nothing jumps out at me to be concerned about... Do note that Blackstone folks noted it as an M30 engine inline 6, not the S65 V8! I've requested a corrected report but they are closed for the day.

At least they are reporting a good bill of health! Seriously, I don't know what to make of these oil reports. I am about to send a sample to Blackstone following my 46k km oil change.

Agreed! Not sure how much real value they offer but for $25 it's worth a look... I would hope that an issue might show up in values well outside the normal range but given that everything on mine is well with in the ranges I view it as a non-event...
