    Oil Question??

    Hi,


    I went to get a top up bottle from my car shop today, because the one in the boot is near empty,


    They only had Castrol edge fully synthetic 5 30


    The one in the boot was the same but shell Helix,


    They both have the same oil codes on the label would it be ok to use the Castrol the car shop said yes?

    My car is a B7 RS4


    But I thought I would check,

    thanks.

    Oil Question??

    Do you guys think £90 is a fair price to be paying for an oil change on an S3?

    Thats what I have just been quoted. Thats using Castrol Edge oil and a new filter.

    Sounds like a bit much to me, although I normally change the oil myself and get trade discount too. Depends how much the oil is costing as thats normally the main cost I suppose.
