Fancy a free oil change and your car on TV/Fifth Gear

    Hello again guys

    Simon from Fifth Gear here again, I was last on here a few weeks ago when I found a great S3 for a Fifth Gear TV feature.
    Since you were all incredibly helpful I thought to get in touch again...

    We are looking for a car that's due for an oil change that has at least 12 months /12,000 miles on its current oil.
    We are filming a feature on motor oil and would like to film a car with oil needing a change, change the oil and then do a comparison in performance etc with the lovely Vicki-Butler Henderson.

    However due to logistics we would need a car that is located within 20 miles of Milton Keynes/Millbrook, we are hoping to film this on the 20th September for about 3/4hours and of course we will supply the fresh recommended Audi OE oil for you ;)
    Again unfortunately were looking for a rather standard example - A3/S3

    Cheers
    Simon

    Most people on here change their oil every 6,000 miles or 6 months but good luck! A free oil change is always handy :)

    Haha I thought that would be the case, these companies claiming long life 20,000 mile servicing simply scares me haha even 12 month is pushing it. Just on the off chance someone might be due soon :)

    Yeah I could do with an oil change. Perhaps "Welcome to Fifth Gear, this week filming from Sydney Australia" - you guys clearly need a holiday... ;) Tiff can take mine for a thrash...

    If they decide to pick me again I'd make sure it's Quantum Platinum 5w-40 since that's what Audi recommend! Would be a good test for the old girl bill!

    Hi Simon,

    Opie Oils would welcome the opportunity to supply the required spec engine oil free of charge.

    Would this be of interest?

    Regards

    Not yet, i think it gets aired either March or April.

    Funnily enough I was on the Discovery site yesterday to see if it had any updated info on it for the new series, but it didnt.
