Hi sorry that I came late again.

@humyum the light matter is ok, normal. Nothing to worry about.

About the colour, I have never used magnatec, so I don't know perfectly. Whatever engine oils are never black in color, unless they are used oil.

Each company has a different color. Like the castrol gtx I use is red. HP is golden/red depending on the variety, same with indianoil. So Magnatec maybe white, well i have seen a fellow using a white oil, sorry don't remember if it was magnatec. As the oil gets used, it basically washes the engine. so it will tend to go black. No worry.

Well I drink to your oil.

Default K&N Oil filter

I have always used a purulator oil filter has anyone tried a K&N oil filter?
It costs a bomb so just wanted to know if it is worth the extra money.

I use synthetic oils that (Shell ultra Helix/ mobil1) that need a replacement only around 15,000kms. was wondering if the purulator filter can keep up its cleansing properties that long.

Hmmmm its a good oil filter but i dont think they can hold for that long.U seriously need to invest in some good quality oil filter if u are not going to change your oil for 15000 km.One more question for u.When u start the car for the first time in the morning and when the oil and the oil filter is like around 5000 km old how long does the engine oil stay after u have started the car?
