5L Shell Helix Ultra ECT 5w-30 with BMW/Mercedes/VW latest approval. £29.99 @ CarParts4Less

Found 4th Feb 2015
This is Shell's top range engine oil, has the latest (or very latest) APPROVAL from BMW Longlife 04; MB approval 229.51; VW 504.00/507.00; Porsche C30.

This oil is similar to Castrol Edge line, or Mobil 1 ESP line, long service intervals, with low SAPS hence DPF friendly.

At £29.99 + Free shipping for 5 litre bottle, this gives £6/L.
If you buy two bottles and use code CP5LESS you get £5 off, which is £5.5/L.
Or spend over £75 and use CP10LESS and get £10 off, or spend over £100 and use CP15LESS to get £15 off.

You probably won't be able to find any Castrol Edge or Mobil 1 ESP selling at these rates.

For those who insists that Castrol is better than Shell, simply because their BMW cars have Castrol logo printed on the engine oil cap: BMW and Mini is replacing Castrol with Shell as their preferred global oil supplier and factory fills from 2015 - it's (close to) nothing to do with oil, it's (nearly) all about marketing.

Unbelievable, if you need oil of this kind this is amazing deal. You should not vote cold only because you don't need it.

Can you provide us with a link to 5ltrs same spec oil for £13 please ?

Just remember that the only thing stopping all of the moving parts in your engine from welding themselves together is the thin layer of oil between the two parts. Oil manufacturers spend millions of pounds on research and development and test these products thoroughly. With oil the same as other things you do get what you pay for whilst with others you may be paying for a name but can you afford to take the risk. I have used cheap and expensive oil and found little difference between the two apart from cheaper oils tend to make the car a bit rattly when cold and the car uses a bit more but then I have never had a car that need special treatment until now.

Any of you reading this who have a petrol car and will never buy a new diesel car then hit the back button because this thread isn't for you. Just go any buy your 3 in 1 oil from your local asda because oil is oil right.....no wrong. You keep a car for a long time and put your refined cooking oil in it once a year and see how long the engine lasts. Good oil is all about the additives the manufacturers put in and these break down after a while hence an oil change being required. Not to mention the build up of condensation diluting the effectiveness of the oil.

For those of us with diesel cars fitted with passive dpf filters decent oil is paramount in reducing extortionate garage bills instigated by the Euro MP's. Some of you won't have a clue what I'm on about but you will all know about the Catalytic Converter introduced on all petrol cars from 1992. Remember all the issues about how long will they last, how much will they cost to replace, well on a modern diesel you have a dpf filter and that's a whole lot worse than a cat with regards to possible future expenditure. Yes it's good for the environment as us diesel drivers are no longer gassing everyone with nasty fumes when our cars are cold. Well not as much. We just wait until the dpf clogs up with soot and then blow it all out as ash in the countryside when we go for a blast. Good system eh, well not for the owner of the car. The system is flawed and was a quick fix to satisfy euro 5 emissions.

DPF or Low SAPS / Low Ash oil is mandatory for a modern diesel and if you don't use a decent quality oil the dpf filter will clog in no time putting your car into limp mode with a trip to the garage the only way out. An oil change and a regen of the dpf will set you back best part of £200 so in comparison £29.99 for 5 litres of oil isn't too bad when compared with your crappy triple whatever oil from whoever.

One thing the OP has missed is which rating DPF oil is this as some have more ash content than others. My particular car requires C1, with C2, C3 and C4 being available also.

Interpreting some posts makes it a bit scary buying a second hand car with some people putting any oil in their car. At least buying cars with full main dealer service history should give some guarantee that the car has had regular and decent oil changes.

^^ The best and most relevant to a thread post I've read on this site.

Good deal, no idea why this post is cold apart from the fact that the title link is incorrect. Voted hot and ordered.

triple x does not have any of the additives that Shell, Castrol, Mobil etc have in them. trust me, used it in my previous car and it burned it out and drained much faster.
triple x on just meets the standard for BMW, VW, etc. it does not surpass it.
