  • Oil and Filter

    Oil and filter done at 3500 miles.

    It does feel instantly quicker - is it just me?

    Had used V Power form birth - then about 5 tanks of T99, then oil change and back to V Power...

    Feels better - is it oil or petrol? (When I changed to T99 my MPG dropped and my smile widened)

    HELP

                  On gran turismo on the playstation, if you changed your oil when oil was dirty, your car gained a 5% bhp boost!

                  I wonder if its the same in real life.. I very much doubt it, but if its the first oil change for the engine it should be at least running a little better.

                          Its a Torx 45 Matey :wink:

                          A little tip, when you put the socket in, give it a little tap with a hammer, then put your ratchet / Bar on and undo it - The Sump plugs are very easy to round - off!
