    due to some turbos leaking including my own i will be changing to a thicker oil eg 10/40's as recommended by courtney sport so i wouldnt be using the 0/40 thats for sure , if your not sure ring courtneys and ask them about the oil ok

      Just make sure that the oil you choose is of vx spec or the warranty will be invalid if it blows up or fails

        I believe the fully synthetic VX oil is now 5W30 spec and should be fine for the VXR.

              yes as i said if the engine goes pete tong and you have the wrong oil in it ie not vx spec that is clearly stated in the handbook then you will be paying for a new engine yourself ie warranty VOID

                  entirely your choice mate just stating how it will be you know how funny vx can be. and everything will be checked on a failure of the engine thats all. Not trying to put the dampers on it. but i did an oil and filter on mine. at my local garage, rang vx for a filter and asked if i put castrol 5w30 long life oil in the car would it be ok. was then told no vx spec oil or nothing, so until out of warranty then vx oil it will be for me.

                    What choices are there in the VX oil range ???

                    I thought the only suitable spec in fully synthetic is the 5W-30 ???

                    :? :? :?
