Thanks for posting.
I usually get the 4L ones but see this is for 5L so picked some up.
Cheers

Thanks for posting. Just ordered, don't forget 2% Quidco too.

Top deal! My other half has a tsi 1.4 180 so need shares in castrol to keep this topped up!

Meets the various specs, importantly VW504.00/VW507.00, BMW Longlife-04.

I've just copied and pasted the 'Castrol Edge blurb', but importantly, this is a longlife oil designed for rep-mobiles etc to reduce service intervals upto 30,000 miles between changes, and car 'down time'. Its Castrol's top-spec oil, and believe supercedes their Edge Professional oils.

You'd be more helpful if you recommended an alternative.

VW basically stipulates this long life stuff (yes they probably do have a commercial deal), due the DPF but the BMW equivalent meets the same specs. Its not for everyone, its for newish Diesels with Diesel Particulate Filters/Regeneration.
Older cars without DPFs, you can use cheaper oils, but VW504.00/VW507.00 is the spec I needed.

This should be a LOT hotter in here.

Have some heat from me, this is actually a decent price even if it were for 4ltrs.

is this OK for ford focus diesel???

excellent deal, is thier any way to confirm the oil isnt fake ?

theres a lot of posts saying fake is available online..

Bit of common sense would say a large business like Mytyres would not sell fake oil and it is not in the business interest.

Is the parent company, check their website. mytyres has a turnover of €314 million, about one third of (no company connection) Halfords (€1100 million).

Ordering feedback:
Placed Order on 8th. Stated in stock, but this must be German Stock, as UK bottles are 4L, Germany 5L.
My order was dispatched on the 8th from Germany to be delivered next week 15th (tracked DHL), not 2-4 business days though. just in case, if you need it quickly, though does seem to only state this for tyres 2-4 business days, in fairness.

Tracking code received is 12 digits, so you need to use german DHL to track.

I Needed for a VW 2.0L 140 Turbo Diesel with DPF, 2011 meeting VW507.00 Specs.

Received this morning 12th Jan, so delivery was as stated 2-4 working days. (Oil has Castrol hologram on Bottle).
UK part of Journey, delivered by Parcelforce, even though sent DHL, Germany.
Its sent 'convenient delivery', so if you're not in, it gets dropped at your local post office (not sorting office), where you can collect for free at your convenience, which is handy to know.

All good, and quick! Excellent.

Grossly overpriced this oil.
Fully synth, exactly same spec, (but not VW 507, but be honest, how many of us really need that?) for just over half including postage.
Made by a British oil company 35 years in the business.
Marketing hype adds a lot to the price we pay, but doesn't make it any better.

The company behind this is a silent partner, sell their oil under private labels from their clients. Their own name will never appear in any market (Euro Oils in Redditch).

Got this oil in our two cars (Scenic & Picasso), no issues at all.

The big oil brands are, in my eyes, ripping us off big style, their image / quality all marketing hype, the link provided is the proof to that.
As good, MUCH cheaper (and brough to your front door as well!)

I don't work in the 'oil/ motor supplies trade' and have no other connections to the company mentioned either.
