    Or Autovaux £12 for 5L of VX 10w40 or £20 for 5w30. 5w30 is great in there but probably a bit of over kill. I'd stick the 10w40 in.

    They come from the factory with 10W40. I had one myself, and put 5W30 in it - it really didn't like it for some reason. Leaked out everywhere, and that only had 20k on the clock.
