I wouldn’t blame Chinese. Audi brought manual in current A4. Engineers and marketing people promised 10% A4’s will be sold with manual. I think only 0.7% was sold with stick.

That is oil temperature. Nothing to worry about. I know that route very well and even if it is not 10,000 degrees now, oil temperature would jump.

I would say F30 looks better. However, it will go down as least enjoyable 3 series to drive. That EPS is unforgivable.

I am not sure margin of error can be calculated currently.

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.

Time? Nah. I saw recently very good UOA from E36 with oil being in the sump for 4.5 years. Not any different from few months old oil and same mileage.
