    Default Oil Level and Performance.

    I left home this morning and travelled down to Bristol for a meeting. The car seamed a sluggish and lazy but since I'd de boxed it I put it down to me.

    After Bristol, I headed off to Pompey (where I am now) and 8 miles in I got an Oil light on the dash! Mayday!

    After a quick call to Gsi (Thanks Mark) I headed off to Chippenham where I visited Platinum Motors (VX Dealer). They asked me how many miles I'd done etc etc etc and without looking at the car guessed there was about 1/2 a litre of oil left. We went out to the car and they were spot on.

    Any way it was topped up and the light went away. But more importantly as I left their forcourt, I seamed to have more power again....Am I imagining this?

    I've heard of the opposite but mine is on the bottom fill level at the moment and doesn't seem to be making as much bhp or torque as it should... I'll try filling mine back up.
