The old oil discolours the new oil fairly quickly, I found this out by arguing with my dealer when the car was in warranty and they were doing the service, I always checked afterwards and once complained that they had missed changing the oil it was quite dark......As always the only way you know exactly how and what was done is to do it for yourself........
Wow, I can't believe that. Thanks for letting me know. Hoping that my car is ok (knock on wood).
