It a really long thread but the jest of it is that the guy bought it used from a dealer with 30,000+ miles on it after it went through the dealers inspection and checks.The first time he changes the oil when he looks into the oil service hole he sees the junk. The dealer say that it is normal<jawdrop>. The records show changing the synthetic oil every 15000 miles.

Some where in the thread it talks about the engines from BMW, Toyoto, and Audi having sludge problem because of the extended change intervals.
