  • new turbo

    well had car at the vx garage yesterday and while they where fixing a oil leak from the car they discovered that my turbo is leaking anyway to cut a long story short it's being replaced under warranty , spoke to mark at courts and he said when i get it done to change the oil from 5/30's to 10/30's apparantely this is a better oil for the car and stop's the problem with the turbo jon had same problem with his and not the first car to have it , so i suggest when you do an oil change go for the thicker oil ok , ps car still run's ok but hey let's get it better \/ \/

                    lol... thats a lot... thought i was running high....thought you had to service every year or 10,000, which ever comes first... and running stage 3 thought you would have to service more often..

                      worsy I was advised by Courtenay to use Amsoil 10/40 and that's what I've been using.

                        No it's every 20,000 miles or year.

                              AlexFI I haven't got any more at the mo Changed oil at 2000 and have just clocked 2900 so I'll probably get it done again in another 1000 or so.

                              Found Courtenay to be very helpful when I asked their advice. Service was quick and friendly. Oil delivered in good time £34 + £8.47 p&p and I got a free window sticker :P
