I used that 5w40 RotellaT in my 150k //S8, love the weight, high detergent content, and insane pricepoint (WalMart used to stock 5gal for like $17 or something, not lately tho which blows and has me using Castrol Syntec).

But when I went to my local oil distributor to buy the recommended Brad Penn 10/30 for the 930, the head of the dist looked @ me quizzically when I noted my use of diesel truck oil in my hi-po car (360hp 11:1 compression 7200red). I don't think he "got it".

I'd run HD oil in previous hi-po cars with good result.

I've not gotten that warm fuzzy feeling yet to run it in the 930 tho - sticking with the Penn despite the pricepoint.

HTH, good luck.
