I've read it, and it's an excellent article. Running a 0-weight is fine for cold conditions, but you have a problem when your car gets to operating temperature if you're running 30 weight, that's far too thin. That article is based off Ferrari's specs. 30 weight on a daily driven 575 Maranello might be great, but 0-30 IS too thin for the M50/52 engine. The 0 isn't the problem, the 30 is. He's comparing differences between 0-30 and 10-30. If we were talking about 15-50 or 20-50 compared to 0-50, sure, you can run the 0-50 just fine. But no, 0-30 is not an acceptable oil for an M50/52 engine'd E36.
