    Any brand that meet the GM recommendation:

    OPEL B 040 2095 (GMLL-A-025) OPEL B 040 2098 (GMLL-B-025).
    Fully Synthetic 5w30.

    If it cost £60 not including garage labour to change the oil, then it was Mobil 1 fully synthetic 0w40, which exceeds GM LL A 025.

    Have a read of my post here:

    Bit of a presumption ?

    When i rang dealers last week prices ranged from £60 to £90 and that was just 10/40 oil !

    Had it done at National in the end, 0/30 fully synthetic Castrol Edge , £35 all in (only got charged £28 for some reason tho!)

    Mobil 1 is normally accepted as the best for us normal mortals.

    The GTX Magnatech stuff is good (and slightly cheaper) alternative too.

    Both exceed GM standards.

    I wasn't including getting ripped off in the price....
