    Is Redline really worth twice the price of Mobil1? Both are fully synth.

    Is there a reason you are wanting to use Mobil or Redline of the OE spec stuff?

    I have a 5 litre bottle of the correct oil to change my box and diff oil, but am going to put a litre( Quart) of redline shock proof in my box to see if it will improve the feel. Seems they have good results with this kind of mix in the US

    Yohan: They're both OE spec or do you mean rather than getting it from the dealer? I just think I'll get a better deal elsewhere.
