As long as car sees often operating oil temperatures to evaporate potential gas, it will be fine. I personally would never keep oil that long in, but one year? Piece of cake.

N52 Oil analysis

It is very good report. TBN at 3.2 is bit low for that mileage for Castrol 0W40. Usually that Castrol holds TBN much better. Shearing is excellent as 0W40 KV100 is approximately 13cst.

BMW LL 17 FE+ oil

Yep, ECU will adjust temperature manipulating thermostat to keep it in high range due to efficiency. E90’s do that too.
