      I wouldn't use it, Vauxhall specify a synthetic fluid and that castrol is really basic, the kind of thing that would go in a MK1 Golf or cars of that age.

      We've got a sale on so buy one of the better ones like the Sintofluid, Amsoil, SMX-S from us and get a suitable oil.

      Cheers

          Good plan. The other option to consider is the Redline MTL, which is a bit thinner from cold, so may improve the cold changes more than other oils.
