    dude, stop reposting the same questions.

    1lt is enough

    put either oil in its fine, the difference in viscosity is minimal, and to be honest these 10+ year old cars could do with some thicker stuff

    if your this unsure perhaps you want to take your car to a garage and pay them to do it for you. That way if anything goes wrong you can go back to them to get it sorted rather than it be your fault.

    I think he just wants to be 100% sure he puts the right stuff in bud

    I wouldn't go off age when changing the haldex oil, Daniels' car has only done around 43000 miles
