    Default quick oil question

    is 5w 30 A1 oil suitable for my vectra? Its magnatec, I can get 4l for 10 quid! I know it should be A2/A3 but will it do for my 1.8? Just seen a couple bottles at the homebase where I work.

    pretty good is that the official stuff then? I just want to know if this magnatec stuff is ok, it says its for Fords on the bottle, but its still 5w 30 fully synthetic. With my staff discount its a tenner. False economy if it makes my car poorly tho.
    Cheers for the link mind. I think i'm gonna go for the coil pack you linked me to earlier when I get home from work.
