As someone who lives in the Dallas area, you’re probably all too familiar with the feeling of climbing into a scorching-hot car after it has been parked outside.

In its most basic sense, conventional (i.e. mineral-based) oil is just crude oil that has been refined to remove impurities. Conventional oil generally won’t harm most vehicles under normal driving conditions. In fact, conventional oil is significantly cleaner than it used to be a few years ago, rendering the three-month/3,000-mile rule of thumb obsolete. Be sure to refer to your owner’s manual for specific service intervals.
Synthetic blends are a combination of conventional and full synthetic oil, which offers slightly better performance at a lesser cost than full synthetic oil. Some additives serve a special purpose. For example, “high mileage” blends contain conditioners to help rubber seals last longer and prevent fluid leaks.
Premium Performance: Synthetic Oil
Synthetic oils are specially formulated in a laboratory out of crude oil, where scientists are able to control the composition of the oil for greater stability, durability, and longevity. Full synthetic blends are, unsurprisingly, the most costly since they are designed to handle higher temperatures for longer periods of time without breaking down. Only a few high-end luxury makes such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Jaguar actually require full synthetic oils, so be sure to check out the owner’s manual specific to your car’s make, model, and year. Full synthetic oils are typically only used in high-performance vehicles which regularly endure intense driving conditions.

When most people think of a world-class luxury automaker, a reputation image comes to mind—an expectation of quality and craftsmanship. Car color has a major impact on branding, and just as no one would take an executive in a neon suit seriously, few cars can pull off ostentatious colors. Of course, most of the most famous names in luxury automobiles such as Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar are also some of the oldest, and it’s no secret that these juggernauts are well-known trendsetters for the rest of the industry. Just consider the results from the 2012 DuPont Automotive Color Popularity Report.
Off-white, pearl-white, polar white, or any shade in between, most consumers in America prefer to the elegance and cleanliness of a coat.
