Oil Analysis

Does anyone but me do any used oil analysis on their RL? I did my first one at 6,000 miles and the analysis from the lab indicated too high a level of copper (indicative of bearing/cooler core problem) and silicone (dirt/sealant material).
Took the info to the service manager at the dealership and the best he would do and only after I asked, was to make the analysis part of my record with them. I'd like to talk to the district service manager but can't get his contact info from the dealer.

If anyone else is doing analysis and had results either good or bad, I'd love to hear from you.
