First of all, thanks for you help with this forumI have a 02 996 and have been looking for a SL type spec in the 0-40 or 5-40 weight. You had recently recommended: "The ELF/Total product is Porsche approved; they offer Excellium in 5-40 and 10-50. I would use 5-40 in your car." I researched the online sites and all the Excellium 5-40 I found was in the SM (bad vs. the old SL) spec (I have read the LN engineering site). What is the advantage of the Elf over the Mobil 1 (which I can get locally) if they are both SM spec? What is you recommended source?
