Excellent price for 10W40 viscosity. Voted hot! 😁
Echo that.
Great price but I have to wonder whether cheap oil in an expensive car is a wise choice? Probably OK as long as it is changed regularly/frequently rather than just following manufacturers' extended service schedules. It's often said that the cheapest way to extend your engine's life is to change the oil and filter more frequently- manufacturers recommend extended service intervals to lower the estimated running costs for fleets, etc. and this is not always in the best interests of those who plan to keep their cars longer.

I change mine twice a year without fail. You can generally tell when your oil needs changing as you can hear the tappets on cold mornings, a sure sign your oil has lost its viscosity.
my old Audi 80 was on 168,000 miles when I got rid of it and engine was still a good un. My current Honda is on 115,000 and still sounds as quiet as a sewing machine.

Don't forget to change the old gearbox oil too. Most mechanics say there's no need to, but if someone who has owned your car crunches the gears there's loads of fine metal in there to ruin gearbox bearings.

Carlube eh?

Bargain, though most modern stuff 5w30... ideal for top ups (will mix with 99.9% of oils) or slightly older cars petrol/diesel... and motorbikes providing it doesn't make your clutch slip (always change if it does).

more like wrong viscosity is the cause...

We'll yeah, oil will loose its viscosity over time. That's what I'm saying.
Fresh oil has a stickiness, where as broken down oil doesn't. Next time you do an oil change put a drop of used and fresh oil on a slope, the old oil will run down faster - hence a lower viscosity, it gets thinner as it wears out.

Not twice a year unless you cover 60k a year...
