    Assuming it is the 2003MY in your profile, and there is no third party warranty in place, you can use any synthetic oil
    Ideally, use GM-LL specification, but there is no need to
    If you are having the oil and oil filter changed at less than 10K mile intervals, then go for a 10W40 oil
    If you are keeping to the 10K mile intervals then go for any 0W30 5W30 or 5W40 oil

    Vehicle : Honda Civic

    Trim : SE,Panoramic Roof and Power Mirrors

    Engine : 1.8 Vtec

    Personally I prefer 5/30 Magnatec. If your not doing 20k a year, as m8internet says, there is no need to stick to the VX LL spec stuff but I would either stick to 5/30 or a thinner 0/40
