    Pants, waste of money.

    Instead, spend your money doing an oil change every 5k.

    might be worth checking the oil pickup in the sump as well just to make sure its clear and not blocked

    I wouldn't use it on a modern engine i have however been considering the gearbox treatment... reason behind this is,,, years ago , about 20 actually when i used to soup up minis i once treated a mini engine to Slick 50 .. now as you may or maynot know the mini gearbox actually sits inside the sump of the engine, the gearbox is the actuall sump if you get me and they share the same oil... mad idea i know but it seemed to work .. anyway after the treatment the gear changes became much easier and smoother .... mini gearboxes do tend to be quite loud and it quietened it down a tad too... so unless people have heard of horror stories for gearboxes ????

    When i first got my s3, i drained the oil, filled up with some cheap oil, run for 30 mins the drained it agin. The removed the sump and cleaned the oil pick up and put back together. Refill with shell helix ultra. Change oil every 5000 miles and its never black and wrank.
