S3 Engine Oil change options? and how to?
The list of things to do on my S3 is just getting longer and longer but I have got myself into a spot of bother with money at mo and they will have to wait.
I wanna make sure the essentials are done and having done just over 5k miles on the oil thats in it (which was changed by the garage I bought the car from because I asked them to) this oil was going to be used as a flush through as the oil before was very black. So my main concern is getting this changed for winter period.
I could possibly do the change myself but I am not sure exactly how to do it, I know the basics as I have done work on my old Mini but as for tools, jacking up etc to be honest I get a bit worried that I may just make a complete mess of my pride and joy.:( My drive way at home is sloped downwards so I thought maybe face the car down and jack up front so its nearly level?
1) So I could possibly do this myself and from what I've seen Quantum oil can be picked up for about £15 and filters about £4.29?
2) I have found that National Tyres do the oil change for £33 with online discount. What do we reckon to this? Apparently they use 5w30 castrol edge.
General advice and musings/experience would be much appreciated.
