    Was just wondering what oil you lads use?

    How often do you change your oil?

    I change mine every 3-4k

    Currently using castrol edge.

    Any other oil anyone would recommend?

    change mine every 6 months or 5k miles.

    No problem until now.

    Pay £21 for 5L (trade)

    Synta gold is 5w40, where as syta (in a silver bottle) is 10w40. I got recomended to use 10w40 by quattronics audi tuners. They use synta in there 800bhp s2.

    i use castrol edge 5w30, i change it every 10000miles but it burns half a litre every 1500 miles or so. I do a thousand miles a month so the way i see it is as long as i keep topping it up its like getting a part change of oil, so i only do it every 10000.
