              and the rest !

              A previous bill I had for service from a VX Masterfit garage was roughtly 60 odd pounds + VAT just for the Mobil 1 0w40

              Mobil1 0w40 and the rest is 20% off at the moment at Halfords, but Costco beats everyone hands down if you can get to one ??

                  When u do an oil change, do any of you use a engine flush?

                  Also what oil are u using on a stage 3?

                  Oh and last question how often you changing it? 2k? 4k?

                  Thanks

                    I changed mine yesterday myself. Oil and filter (with filter seal ring) cost me £21 from vaux as im a trade club member through AON.

                    I change mine every 6 months with 5W-30 fully synth.

                    Doing it yourself is a doddle just make sure you have a decent filter removal tool, makes the job a lot easier!

                    EDIT - No I dont use engine flush.

                        Same here mate, good oil but not every 3k, jeez I'd be changing it every 5 weeks or 10 times a year!!

                          The Pro S 5w-40 is an awsome oil, however it will last a lot longer then 3000 miles, it will go 10,000 no problem.

                          Cheers
