    Plus Mobil 1 offers a $12 Rebate a few times a year, I usually buy a 2 and get $24 back.

    I'd view them as a premium oil similar to royal purple.

    I think my mechanic uses it for my parents Subaru as well. Either way if you're getting it for a good price totally worth it. Definitely not a crappy oil.

    Motul is the oil of choice for endurance racing

    Motul is good stuff. If I wasnt an Amsoil dealer and user for the past 10 years, I would probably use only Motul.

    I am not familiar with their 8100 line as the only real Motul experience I have is with their motorcycle oils.

    Motul is definitely a 'premium' synthetic line in my book but I can't say anything more specific than that. It'll work fine if you get a good price on it.

    if you think TW has crazy people, bobistheoilguy is incredible. there are dudes on there absolutely convinced that they can tell a power difference on their corolla between mobil 1 and redline oil.

    I've used Motul products on my motorcycles, but not in a "cage", but it is generally held to be a top quality product.
