As a fairly cheap test, I would suggest a good oil change. Something that holds a better film may be all that you need to remedy. rated LL-01 and Full SAPS.

I run BMW's Castroil 5w-30 Full Syn. Car came with the maintenance warranty and they do the oil changes 1yr/12k miles. I also do 1 oil change myself in between that as 12k is redic, esp on a modified engine. I just changed my oil back in Oct (using the same oil) for the winter. Current oil has ~2k miles on it...
