          Would depend on dealer I suppose - they will still charge for filter and labour so I see no reason why not?

            its going in soon for stud bolts replacing so might aswell get it done then .(full day as removing turbo ect ect )
            might haggle over labour as they are pretty good with me ,

              a oil change is dead easy to do your self its a 10 min job and only a few tools are needed
              T45
              oil pan
              oil filter tool
              on the oil I would say use a 10w40 in the LEH turbo
              the truth is out there
              part GSI part VXR

                  vaux recommend 0-40w or 5-30 why choose something different?

                  personal preference maybe but i guess in cars that have warranty this could be a factor imo

                    Even less cold start protection than the 5w?

                      I wouldn't bother, 3k miles is really nothing, at most I would say 5k and even that is a bit OCD. Save the money, go out and have a good night out or give it to charidee, seriously 3k is excessive.

                        your the second tuner that recommended at least 5k , think i`ll do as you said and have a few extra beers instead , not that charity`s don`t deserve it but i do my bit for them , here`s my favorite which i donate to every week through my wages http://www.bliss.org.uk/

                        cheers Thorney

                              tbh with the level of muck that will come out with the factory supplied oil I'm glad I done mine at 2000. Fair enough after that then 5000 miles all the way but the initial fill of oil I would have out now.
