Hi New.

Have literally changed the oil just now after 300 miles. Haven't driven it anywhere but it certainly sounds quieter idling.

There were no chunks in the oil.

Wasn't try to fix anything. More of a decarbon of the internals.

Here is a picture of the oil after driving 40 miles to work at 70 moh.

Looks pretty clean for a diesel.

Here's a better one. You can see how clean the oil is on the dipstick.

She's just rolled 100,000 miles and the engine oil and crankcase are that clean. Now I'm happy.

What I would suggest, for atleast next few times, is to send oil samples with each oil change to a lab to make sure the iron count is not creeping up.

Hi Tommit,

Might change my profile name to Capt. James T. Kirk as I appear to be boldly going where no V10 owner has gone before. :cool:

Hi TouaregNut,

That's a good idea. If I can remember to do it in 5000 miles I'll get a sample on its way out and post the results.

In the absence of scientific data at the moment I can only report on the driving experience.

There's no oil leaks and no funny noises. It seems to be idling quieter and the power delivery is silky smooth compared to previous. On the motorway the tyre noise seems louder so perhaps the engine is now quieter under load too?
