This is actually debated by many. The break-in period to seat the rings, etc., takes longer. For instance BMW M5's also come with full synthetic and don't really seat the rings 'till after 10,000 miles. Many owners complain about using too much oil until then.Originally posted by pan61:
I know this was coverd before but don't remember the answer. How come corvetts and volvo's come with synthetic already in them if it's not good until after breakin?
