    I know i've been trying to clarify some thing in a few threads now for oil in a 3.2 and apologise for doing so again. I would like a bit of up to date info off of other 3.2 owners (there must be some of you out there?)

    Can 3.2 owners please add to this thread what oil you currently run your car on ?

    many thanks

    It probably that they do not have a clue what oil is in the 3.2.

    We haven't had ours long enough for a service to come due but if I remember, I'll check the service record tomorrow to see if it says what oil was used at the first service. Oh and I'll also check the oil level which I should do far more often than I actually do! :keule:

    Have had my 3.2 for 14 months, not put a drop in. Check it regularly too.

    Remembered to check the service book today but oil used not stated. Bottle in the boot is Castrol Edge 5W30. Forgot to check oil level again - duh
