    I normally use 10/40 on my dti, change it every 10k though, think 0/30 or 5/30 may be too thin?

    Default Oil..........

    I don't think you can go far wrong with the VX Specific Fully Synthetic 5w/30 from Halfords. If you are seriously wealthy then Mobil One is as good as you can get.Don't use a non fully synthetic, it could cause carbon build-up on some parts. It is also a good idea to clean out the engine by using Wynns or similar in the old oil for 10 minutes or so before draining, this also helps remove deposits, particularly in the ring lands.
    A Halfords Trade card is a great saver, the cost savings on stuff like bulbs has to be seen to be believed.

    that is wery true. i bout nearly £100 worth of bulbs ( 4 bulbs in total) and it came in at just over £45, and a battery for 1.9TD peugeot and that was just over £40 and halfords had it priced at £95.
