    Every body has their own view on oil & what viscosity/make to use, but as said as long as falls within Vauxhalls required grades,put what you like in. If you called 5 different dealerships,I bet they would all be using different grades & makes. On my last service they used 0w/30 Castrol slx. ( Dont know if its been done,but perhaps Tom_y2k4 could add the oil info from the manual, to the beginners guide??).

    yeah was just asking cause the hand book says 0w-30, 0w-40, 5w-30 or 5w-40.

    so in the car atm is 5w-30 but was wondering if there is anypoint/any difference swapping to 5w-40?
    cheers

    Read your hand book for approved oils.

    5w30 fully synthetic is the standard fitment stuff. I've always used it never used anything else.

    I think you should get your car back to Wales and drive round the roads there, can't see the roads of Oxford being as joyful as welsh roads lol
    Not sure if I'll take it to my dealership to get it done, they take the p1ss sometimes
    I wouldn't know tbh! Maybe when it's run in I'll take it for a blast
