    I can not recomend any. I used to use them on " older" cars in the past.
    But what I will say, is that Vauxhall do not recomend any, as they sat that they may undermine the oil. Bu no doubt other members will have their opinion about this.

    i always sling some cam lifter stuff in there if im using cheaper oil and it gets rid of the diesel "Clatter". but i only use magnatec now and Slick50.

    id allways recomend Slick50 allways makes mine (2.0DTi) sound a little bit smoother.

    I would say don't use any unless you need to.

    I'm sure it even mentions in Tis that adaptive can void your warranty as it then doesn't conform to Vx spec.

    Internal lab and engine test bench investigation revealed that the usage of not released oil additives will cause
    an increased engine oil consumption. In some cases the measured oil consumption has increased by 100%.
    Modern Opel engines in combination with high quality engine oil do not need additives. Therefore the
    usage of any not Opel released engine oil additive is disapproved. All related warranty claims will
    be rejected.

    DO NOT USE ADDITIVES, they do nothing but harm and cost you money. Why is Slick 50 in complex legal wranglings?

    I posted a report on here a while ago from independant research proving they weren't beneficial
