    sorry know this has been asked a million times.

    need to top up the S3 with a fully synth - what's best that's available say at Halfords?

    many thanks in advance.

    hey Mr Aky - how goes it?

    Changing oil every 5K so don't normally need to top up but overdue a change and needs a sip (one of these lazy non-mechanics who doesn't do it himself).

    I'm not bad pal! I use Mobil1 0w40 and change mine about every 8k but for some reason my S3 likes oil. I presume it depends on what grade oil you're currently using.

    If you are changing every 5k then halfords own brand fully synthetic will do. It's the same spec as Synta Gold and been running my S3 on it for past 4 years.
