Break-in oil myth


I believe that this break-in oil is becoming a myth now.

If you look at the new HD Synthetic screaming eagle oil 20W-50, it is clearly stated there that it is compatible with break in procedure.

You mentioned that your Audi come with break-in oil. Well I seriously doubt it. I have a 92 Audi S4 w/103kmiles and very modified. Have been using Mobil 1 or Motul synthetic since 800 miles with no problem (actually it is probably arguably in better condition than if I had been using non-synthetic oil). My Mercedes E55 come from the factory with Mobil 1 0W-40 synthetic (same one used by the dealer during service). My Porsche 993 turbo come from the factory with Shell synthetic 5W-40. All current Porsche come with Mobil1 0W-40 from the factory.

My 03 Vrod start using synthetic oil since 500miles.
