    Default 2.0 Turbo Engine Oil

    Car is in for its service tomorrow. What is the recommended/best engine oil for a 2.0 Turbo?

    Its been remapped and i do between 12-14k a year.. Never gets thrashed!

    I would much rather pay a bit extra and get the best as opposed to something "that will do the job"

    Cheers

    I think this "Dexos 2" thing focuses more on keeping the engine clean rather than lubricated
