    Is £18 on trade club. So well worth being a paid up member specially since the v6 takes 7 and half litres

    Depends on what oil and filter change interval you are now using
    Equally as an 04 reg if the car is covered by any form of warranty

    If you are still using the OE plan, 30K miles / 2 years, then you need to use any GM-LL specification oil (check the miles to next service if ECO Flex is active on your car)
    Equally, if covered by warranty then this is the service plan you must be following

    However if you have reduced to 10K miles / 1 year, then any fully synthetic oil is acceptable (you may use this plan if your car is not covered by any warranty)
    There is little benefit to be had and it will cost you more in the long term (revised to three oil and filter changes instead of one)

    Use the vauxhall stuff, for the money you pay on trade price you cannot beat it
