New Pennzoil OEM oil analysis (yes, another oil thread)

I searched and couldn't find any additional information at the time of writing...

Has anyone been able to run the new Shell/Valvoline OEM oil and have an oil analysis to report?
Part #: 83212365944 (83-21-2-365-944)

Here's more info

I know this is a bit early to ask as the oil is just hitting shelves this year, and there are still Castrol inventories in the parts departments...

I believe it is Pennzoil that is Shells brand, not Valvoline.

And I think this stuff is just starting to hit dealerships. Doubt anyone even has it in the M3 yet, let alone enough miles for an analysis.

If someone can pick up a bottle, sacarfice it, and do a VOA, we can still compare it to how it holds up against the TWS ;D My dealers here in Canada is carrying TWS? =/

TWS Motorsports or Castrol Edge Professional? TWS Motorsports is even older.
