    I've seen this offer before mate and various people on here say it's fine.

    I would say 'yay'

    Cheers Fossie..

    I've just purchased the car, and Evans Halshaw did an oil n filter change as part of their pre sale preparation.. I'm guessing they didn't use anything expensive, so i'm changing it to give me peace of mind. Spotted this on Asda's shelf and thought i'd ask all those in the know on here....

    Its on sale too in Tesco for Ł22 as is Castrol Edge which is great, Halfrauds sell it for Ł46 so even with trade discount its cheaper to go to Tesco/Asda. When I looked at the Magnatex one though I could have sworn it said for Opel and Ford and had no mention of 505 00 or 507 00? Could be wrong though...

    could someone explain the difference? if they've already got a 5W30 rating, what's the other rating for?
    2006 Phantom Black A3 2.0T S-Line.
    DSG | 18" BBS Pescaras | Rear Parking Sensors | MFSW | Symphony II | BOSE | Auto lights/wipers | Half leather
    MODS : '09 tail lights | TT vents | Weitec Hicon GTs | RNS-E 2010 | Controls Pack (Red Stitching)
    PLANS: Dumbos | 8P3 S-Line Rear Bumper | OEM Parking Sensors


    GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN:
    2005 Ebony Black A3 1.6 Sport tiptronic. You will be missed!
    1997 BMW 316i Coupe M-Sport. You won't be missed quite so much!

    5w30 is just the "thickness" of the oil. The other rating is for things like ash content and other oil techy stuff. Effectively ignore the "5w30" and get the stuff which matches the VW rating for your motor.

    This oil thing always confuses me....

    Saw this (see below) in Asda the other day.... So, for a 2.0T is this a yes or no???
    And what is the difference between these Castrol Edge for Ł10, and the Castrol Magnatec 5w30 for Ł3??? (apart from Ł7!!)

    The Edge is in a lovely gold bottle. Well worth the extra Ł7 per litre...

    I put 5-30w Edge in my S3 - whichever one has the correct VW50x code for my engine...

    Nice touch! Not sure if it replaced the SLX. I'm off to Tescos to get some now though...

    From what I can gather the Magnatec meets the VW 505 00 standard which is for older ( pre 2000 ) diesels according to the opieoils site.

    Edge 5w30 meets 504 00 and 507 00 which is for new diesel / petrol cars. It's the same stuff as supplied with my car in the top-up pouch in the boot.

    I picked up two litres on Sunday from Asda for Ł10 a litre. Seems like the cheapest place at the moment, it's Ł16.99 in Halfords.
