    Oil Options?

    Had a warning light come up this morning saying my oil level was minimum, what oil should i get to fill her back up? Halfords suggests 5w30? Should i use semi or fully synthetic? What brands should i look at or avoid? Thanks

    You shouldn't mix your oil up Matey If you are unsure. If you have the service book and the last service was a VAG dealer....good chance it will be VAG long life...should maybe say in the service book. For the same price a full tank of derv you could treat your pride and joy to an oil and filter change and put in some nice fresh gear to be on the safe side.

    Good Luck
