  • Oil + filter change - will it affect warranty?

    Hi guys

    I got my vxracing this week and despite being only 6 months old and 2000 miles on the clock the oil is looking pretty black and when I plugged in ****** it said the oil had 53% life left.

    I feel that it could do with a change but I'm curious as to how this would affect my Network Q and manufacturer's warranty as I understand that the car needs to be serviced with genuine vauxhall parts. Does this just mean that I need to use a genuine vauxhall oil filter or could I get away with a generic one without voiding the warranty? Cheers

      Yeah I'll probably just do that if they're not too expensive, it's just that my mechanic mate who works for merc gets generic parts stupidly cheap through euros but as you say I'll just ask him to get me a genuine one! Cheers

            I know it's been posted a million times but everyone seems to use different oil!?

            I used 10-40 in my last astra turbo and am about to do an oil change in the VXR.

            I'm reading 5-30 full synthetic in other threads but would like some clarification

                i used 0W40 on my last oil change as my mate works for lubrizol and they test oils all the time on different cars and recommends this as best oil for the astra vxr engine running a map!

                  I also used 0W40 Mobil1 on my last oil change, and my car is standard.

                    Will using 10w40 harm the car at all? I have a slight issue with valve stem seals and I'm wondering if I put some 10w40 in will reduce the issue slightly?
