Quote possibly not. People will believe anything to save a few quid. They did some tests years ago on so called budget priced premium oils, and they weren't as good. They found that many fully synthetic oils were actually 'based' on fully synthetic oil, they were in fact a derivative of fully synthetic, but not the same as. Many times they aren't engineered or tested to the same specification of true brand leaders like Castrol or Mobil. They did not have the same endurance or anti-sludging qualities of the premium branded oils. I don't personally know about Halfords own products and how they're engineered, but it's a big risk in my opinion unless you know who makes their oil.

Some things like aftermarket spark plugs are actually identical parts to the OEM ones, so you're basically paying 3 or 4 times the amount for the OEM stamp, and nothing else (sometimes the same for oil filters, but not always).

I've used Halfords oil for a while now, yes it is supplied by Comma on the web page look where it says "additional information" (at the bottom of the Description tag) and click the safety data sheet link.
Comma was part of Exon so its not some back street set up: commaoil.com/abo…ory
Good price for this product.

I think you will find that 5w30 is better for your car if you are in the UK (as it may not be the best if you are in a cold country) - I did lot's of research and decided 5 is better than 0.
after many years of paying for castrol I have now started using cheap oils that meet the spec and change the oil more often (mines a diesel and the oil gets very black after a year)
