    Default Oil and filter change

    My mate needs an oil change on his Astra and Just wondered if you guys think these are good prices for an oil and filter change? http://www.national.co.uk/order_oil.asp

    Also would the castrol magnatec 5w-30 fully syn be ok for 1.9 cdti engine or would he be better off with the vauxhall oil.

    Cheers

    as for oil there are several types of 5w30 oil,the magnatec oil will probably be normal fully synthetic oil,where the vectra will use a long life oil,i would use vauxhalls own oil as it is a good quality oil

    He' not too fussed about the longlife oil as he has the oil changed every 6000 miles. I was just wondering if the castrol would offer less protection than the vauxhall stuff

    i was on the phone today asking castrol about there Castrol Edge and bet you didnt know that all the oil are the same 0-30 5-30 petrol and diesel are both the same oil .

    what a shocker is what they charge for petrol and diesel oil and it the same.

    My previous Vectra B went to 140K miles in four years, with services by the book at every 10K miles
    When trading in they didn't even want the service book!

    as soon as the mileage gets high enough - dealers dont care.
