    Quantum Oil ermm? need advice

    Hi All,

    When i went to R-tech i was told i had cheap oil in my car and he said i should use quantum oil or another premium oil.

    i just phoned TPS and they said it was Ł14.91 inc VAT that cant be true surely? i thought it would be like Ł40+

    that was for 5 litres aswell!

    it is 5w40 i need aint it?

    oil filter was Ł5.49 which is about right but still shocked about the oil!

    Don't knock it, buy it!!

    5w40 not as expensive as 5w30.

    I bought some 5l quantum platium 5w40 fully syn and a genuine oil filter from TPS few weeks back for Ł21 something.

    The guy also said its just rebranded Castrol and used by Vag dealers so its quality stuff.

    im not sure how they knew :/ he just said i need to get some better oil in there as he reckons i had cheap oil. i phoned my garage n he asked the same thing. he laughed and said how would they know unless they had a laboratory on-site lol.

    he said he gave me 5w40 revolution branded oil.

    ill get the quantum to play it safe as its a cheap swap anyhow

    den - thats a good price but i have a free labour voucher at another garage n i just pay for parts so ill use that until it runs out

    cheers all
