I thought 505 was for cars that had the oil breakdown monitors.

Some oils are rated for extended drain intervals (503/504/506/507, rated from 30 to 50k kms, gas/diesel), but there's nothing unsuitable about them for a shorter interval (except they are likely going to be more expensive).

505/505.01 are not engineered to be extended drain oils.
