    Interestingly, I was looking at this last night and the oil specified was "EDGE 0W-30 Magnatec 5W-30 A3/B4" and the quantity needed is 4.3 litres. Halfords sell it in, guess what, 4 litre containers.

    I've noticed more and more oil sold in 4ltrs and from memory every car I've ever owned has taken over 4ltrs

    I've seen a lot of people on here recommending this, I've not used it myself yet but will when it's due.

    On a high mileage motor there's no reason you can't use either 5w30 or 10w40...

    Mines on 125k &has just had a full service using 5w30.

    Thumbs up

    castrol edge 0/30................and filter changed at national tyres £35.00, be suprised if you can buy it for that let alone get it done, and be carefull with thicker oils as your turbo won;t be protected when cold
