    Default gear oil question ....

    is this fit for my vec ? or what and where will I get some ? I'm guessing stealers prices will be through the roof and my budget is burst with replacement box and fitting

    Assuming you have a manual transmission, then use this as it's excellent quality, as several members on here will vouch for:

    I changed the oil in my gearbox recently and was pleasantly surprised at how cheap it was from the dealer. I seem to remember paying around £4 a litre as ChrisBilly says.

    The Castrol oil is still suitable for your transmission.
