    Default What Oil?

    Car is going in for it's first year service next week. I've read lots of threads about $tealers putting in 10/40 instead of 5/30 oil and I thought I'd supply them with my own oil so I know what's in it. So the question is what oil and how much should I expect to pay for it?

    Had a quick look in Halfrauds today and they have their own brand and a couple of others. Is the Halfrauds one as good as any (I expect it's supplied by one of the majors anyway) or should I go for a branded one? What would be a good price?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for that.
    I'd change the oil myself too, but I need the $tealer's stamp to safeguard the warranty.

    I would do it yourself, I got mine from Opie Oils an approved trader on here. If you register on their site you get better prices.
