    Question What oil in Halfords?

    Hi people.

    Need to get my car serviced tomorrow including oil change as my engine has now finally run in woo hoo!

    I'm working all day today and won't have the chance to explore for oil so i'm gonna have to do a Halfords job tomorrow morning. Does anyone know what the best oil is for my car in Halfords? Just in case you need to know, my car has the following mods...

    Superchips Stage 1 remap
    Fully rebuilt turbo with upgraded 360 degree thrust bearings
    Forge 007p
    BMC
    N249 bypass
    Autobahn88 TIP
    Custom exhaust with 200 cell sports cat

    I'm not clued on with oils at all so please help a brother out

    Thanks everyone.

    a good fully synth 5w40. not sure id use halfords own, but castrol edge is very expensive.

    personally id be down the dealer and get 5L of quantum platinum, very good value for a very good oil

    this stuff. its what VW dealerships have been supplying for years, all meets the relevant VW specs etc so perfectly good for your engine.

    your engine wants 5w40 fully synth. ask for quantum platinum
