    Default engine oil question?

    I have a 2003 2.2sri vectra, was wondering whats the best oil to use? its only done 38,000 and im not sure whats in it at the moment, seen a few posts on here saying that 5w-40w is best, is that ratio for diesel engines or is this also good for my petrol engine? many thanks.

    I see mate i will make sure i get some of that in then, just wanted to ask another quick question, im wanting to change my wheels, i see a tread on here the other day about size affecting the ride and price of 19" tyres and alot of people were saying 18" is a good comprimize so can you rec any styles or give your opinion, i quite like the bk999's which are 18"?

    I'm running on the stock SRi 17's, but from all accounts 18's give the best compromise between style and comfort. The bk's do look the nuts though, so best of both worlds, the VXR look with better comfort.

    yeah thats what i thought and a big saving on the bk's compared to the price on the vx vxr's. im guessing i would have to buy the vx centre caps at extra cost maybe off ebay? best price ive seen the wheels for with tyres all in @ £650.00
