Why is that then mate? All other cars oil ive had seem to look golden 6000 miles+ after a change.
All turbocharged cars i know the oil gets dark after a few miles....i mean you will still have lets say 0.5 liter of old oil in engine after the oilchange....this mixes up and so the new oil gets "dirty" from mixing both,but thats just visual,doesnt have a negativ effect:thumbsup:

Mainly combustion by products, oil going black is a good thing as it just means its doing one of its jobs of cleaning.
