Mobil 1 0W-40 is here!!

Just went to the Mobil 1 website and they now list 0W-40 as an available weight. It states it meets the strict A3 ACEA European rating and is approved by VW/Audi, BMW, Saab, Porsche and Volvo. Oddly, Mercedes was not listed. I don't know if it's a matter of getting permission to list their name. I don't use Mobil 1 right now. My Benz gets Delo 400 15W-40 and my Passat gets Valvoline Synpower 5W-40. This oil also meets the ACEA A3 rating and is approved for "BMW High performance Synthetic oil requirements; VW 500, 502, 505, Mercedes 229.1, all Rolls Royce/Bentley cars and all Porsche performance requirements.
