Thanks Barry for putting out in nice words, what I was avoiding to say without having any technical knowledge but just based on end-user experience.

Second good point I also like to mention about the heat resistant is the main key for any engine oil to live or die in offroad extreme usage.

The third point of that debate of winter/summer month has too little as engine inside temperature is far above 150 degrees and I'm sure at 6k rpm during off-roading same engine oil must be cooking at 200+ degree. So with those temperature Synthetic oil stand a better chance of survival than the mineral blends. And also provide consistent lubrication to all engine part when under extreme stress.

Yep, because all the molecules are the same size, which means that all the molecules in the oil share the load equally- which is not the case with even the best mineral oil.

Correct, hence don't bother with semi-synthetics where it could be literally 2% syn and 98% mineral, fork out a little more and go full synthetic.

Thats true the stupid BMW V8 I have in my range rover runs hot like brick oven and mineral oil in it will be cooked to a crisp. Use to wonder why only strictly full synthetic oil is listed as a must for it.

Last time I buy anything with BMW, BMW engineering my ass!

fully synthetic and semi-synthetic motor oil.

Apart from the price and synthetic/mineral content, whats the difference? like what does it do to the engine?

      After yesterday's drive while coming out to tarmac, I experienced little intermittent blinking of engine oil and realized that its time to top up. After coming out I topped up the engine oil to MAX level which was earlier close to MIN level but in safe zone. Then after topping up still engine oil light was blinking on highway, so pulled over and Jalil checked if oil is coming to lifters from engine oil cap and it was all fine. After one day cool off, just started the car and now its no longer blinking but more of a constant light in D and no light in reverse.
      Any idea what is happening and how we can fix this.....?

      I need an advise guys, i changed my car engine oil yesterday its a pajero 3.8 lwb 2010 model. 
      At the time the mechanic done with refilling the new oil hr show me the new level and it was above the maximum mark with 1 cm i told him you put more than required he said no once you drive the car the extra oil will go in the engine oil filter. 
      Honestly i didn't believe that however i decided to go home and check again the next day morning when the car run the oil into the engine and the filter as per his comment. 
      However today morning i checked the oil level and it's still the same 1 cm above the maximum mark. 
      So the question is that harmful?
      Should I drain the extra oil? If yes how to do that DIY ?
      Ps: I only drove 30km since oil changed. 
      Appreciate your advise guys.

      What is more important and relevant in car service: Time vs Kilometer driven?
      I just schedule my Range Rover service with Al Tayer and they said I need to get the major service of 120k kms, while the car is only driven 68,000 kms. Their logic is time-based vs km - whichever comes first.
      They gave me this logic last time too when I sent the car for service and they carried out 108k service when the car was 58,000 kms driven. I somehow felt uncomfortable but went with the flow to not to spoil the service history, which has been regularly maintained by the previous owner.
      This time it's quite over the top with major service estimate, where they say they have to change rear diff oil and transfer box oil every 5 years or 120k kms.
      Is it really required to change rear diff and transfer box oil at 68k kms with 5 years of life.....?
      If you say Kilometer driven is prime then why all car manufacturer has this in their maintenance schedule, let alone UAE but everyone uses the same approach globally. Please explain why......?
