I think the dirty appearance is normal for synthetic oils, which are designed to keep contaminants in suspension. At least that is true for the Castrol synthetic oil that VW diesel engines require. A TDI's oil looks dirty before you get home from the dealership after an oil change.

But maybe that's not an apples-to-apples comparison.
