    cheers for the replies guys. doing a bit of research it sounds like the majority of owners seem to use 10W40 in their DTIs, mine has done over 110k miles now. Think the stuff that's in there at the moment is 5W30 though. will I be alright to swap the grade as long as i'm doing a full change, or am I best sticking with 5W30?

    it would be fine mate also if you do a lot of short trips maybe go for 5w40 you get better cold protection.

    In the 6 years i have owned my 2.0dti i have used 10w40 semi synth without any issues and the car has done 118 thou of which 30 odd i have done,if you are servicing the car yourself then drop the oil every 6 months and you'll be cookin with gas,if however the car is being serviced using the eco flex system then one should use fully synth 5w30 and drop every 20 thou...but remember 10w40 semi is much cheaper than 5w30 fully synth..hth
