    Just incase anyone is interested i have just bought the bits to give my car a quick service next week and was really pleased with the deal i got from eurocarparts using promo code : now30

    I got 5l of Shell Helix Ultra Fully Synth 5w-40 oil, bosch oil filter, pollen filter and 4 x NGK BKR7E`s for a grand total of £40.21 inc P+P (should of been £57.45)

    So its a no brainer not to service the car every 6-8k for those prices :)

    just type in "engine oil" in the search bar, then you'll get the chance to select whatever grade you want

    I usually use the 5W-30 shell, but is the 5W-40 suitable for the S3 8L? cheers

    the 30% code has expired :(

    but the code parts25 should still net you 25% discount on service items.

    As for oil grades i used to use 5w-30 but as most of our cars have a few miles on the clock now using a thicker oil is reccomended hence the 5w-40 fully synth i now use

    Bummer, I heard though ECP are going to be doing these types of discounts for a while as they are trying to increase their market share. I've seen few different deals last few weeks from 20% to 31%, clutches excluded sometimes and sometimes not. It's worth keeping eye on if you got a lot to get, I saved nearly 200.

    Also day bought rear wiper £3.44 ECP vs 10.99 halfrauds.
