If the most wear on an engine is during the start process, then that was the focus of Dr. Haas study of oil viscosity.

It eventually came out on FerrariChat that Dr. Haas often started his cars for friends & family and then shut them down. He very rarely drove over 3000 rpm for brief stints, and then had the car returned to storage. His oil requirements are much, much different and atypical to the normal driver.

One can learn a lot about his studies, there is good stuff in his reports, but -as always - make an informed decision based upon your driving style.
~199K miles. I -still- don't fear my 335i.
