    Out of warranty so I'd go indy or diy Kev,diy you will do 5 x as much for 1/5th of the price, and know it was done as well.

    Don't put 10W40 anywhere near it. 5W30 fully synthetic if you can get it at a decent price, especially if you're doing over 8k a year and only change the oil annually.

    I personally would say give it to the dealers; as much as you are out of the warranty the work they carry out is fully warranted.

    I.E, your cam belt snaps they foot the bill!

    Noooooo, I've I've heard putting 5/30 in a car thats used to 10/40 is a no no, due to it's composition it can dislodge old sludge from 10/40 and cause major headaches, anyone care to confirm?
