    Hi,

    I know this has been asked a thousand times but having no joy with searching for "which oil s3" so asier to ask again - sorry.

    Basically which oil is best...from memory I think I read Castrol 5w30 and to buy from Tesco....or something close to this.

    As always your help is appreciated.

    It's for my s3 '10 plate with 8k on the clock.

    Cheers.

    Do you think they're trying to tell you something about the oil consumption?
    Probably, if my 2.0T is anything to go by.
