    I've never been sure about ECP... A lot of mixed reviews.. Ngk plugs & Bosch oil filter are quality products not sure about the rest...

    Comma is a good oil, you will have no problems with it. They also have a bit on their website that you put your registration in and they tell you the correct fluids for your car.. Comma :: Products they guarantee these products are correct and will pay for any damages if proven wrong.

    If you are near a TPS, there is one in Aston in Birmingham, they do quantum oil, if you we're to go for one, use that, as that's what the dealers use too, the triple ax is good too, I have heard that its actually made by shell, don't know how true that is though.

    I always get my service parts from ECP.

    I asked them if they were the same company and they both said no, they just get their parts from the same supplier.
    Even though their websites are near identical

    went with Triple QX oil in the end.

    TSKTSk i think they be telling porkys. They have the same directors etc.
    Car Parts 4 Less Limited - 07596462 - RG1 4QW Berkshire incorporated 07/04/2011 - company credit reports and accounts - bizzy

    They have no address details on the CP4L site which is bit naughty and breaks UK and European online selling laws .

    They have an offer on at the mo on their website which ends today, so if you buy the oil, you get a free Bosch oil filter too.

    Hey Guys,

    If it helps... In most cases even with Euro doing the discount I still can offer better prices! :)

    If you want me to double check just fire me over a PM and with what you need and how much EURO are offering it for and I will see what I can do :D

    Awesome Mike
