    Halford own brand synthetic is the same as Synta Gold. Often on offer at 2 for 1. If you are not on variable servicing and changing the oil regularly (5000 miles/ 6 months for me) there is no need waste money on the AVS oil.

    You could allways try the local vw dealer for synta gold, i was told the same by nottingham audi that they had stopped stocking gold so went to the vw dealer and got 5L of gold for 22 IIRC.

    If you go here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/ and register using your audi-sport.net boards name you can get 10% of the price of oils

    They sell the Castrol Edge 5w30 here
    http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-713-cast...n-engines.aspx

    As well as the 10% off, you'll also get a discount if you buy a four 4L containers. You'll save 10% again.

    I got mine in Halford because it was handy. I got 5 4L containers for pretty much the same price as opie oil...I just ask for a trade discount. I don't have a trade card, but simply asked the guy would he give me a trade discount if I bought a few bottles, he offered the trade discount straight away.

    Just looked back at my old thread...in Feb you could get 16L of Castrol Edge 5w30 from Opie Oils at 121.29...it's now gone up to
    145.76 . That's a 20% increase...maybe not quite the bargain they used to be!
