good. I wish 0w-30 are less than £30

Not recommended on carpets though

5w30 Ford/Jaguar spec also 15.99

I already have 24L of the same spec oil sitting on a shelf otherwise I'd be all over this. Cheap per litre.

mmmmmm oil

Heat

To put Synthetic Technology on the bottle is rather misleading. This is not synthetic oil, it is mineral oil with synthetic additives.

Any good for a 56 plate, auto petrol BMW or will it blow it up , kaboom ?
Usually buy from Halfords, but pay more than this just for 2 litres there.

Banned

its average oil,yet you are being misleaded that its synthetic.
Just get their regular synthetic triple qx for 12.49

The triple QX at 12.49 is a better oil and deal, I agree

You'll need to check what spec oil BMW recommend for your engine. As long as it meets that spec, it should be fine.

Is it full synthetic oil please?

Halfords 5w 30 fully synthetic oil is on sale at £12 for 4 litres. It is Ford compatible and made by Comma.

To be fair the bottle does say "Synthetic Technology" and the blurb: "Makes use of both synthetic and mineral base stocks".

All this means is that it's semi-synthetic, which is what you'd expect for consumer 10W.

if you use save5 you save 5% its 80p but still brings it down to £15.19

Mate! ARE YOU MAD? oO

Please don't put this in your car! You need BMW LL-01 spec oil as a minimum. I believe BMW put in 5w30 Fully Synthetic as standard for petrol cars. You will need around 6.5L of oil (upto 2.5-3.0L engines).

I have a 2003 (auto/petrol) car and nothing goes in but higher than standard spec Mobil 1 0W-40. The above spec should do you fine though but double check for your specific car.

Try ebay, opie oils for better prices and expect to pay around £30-35 for 5L. Halfords will be more like £48. If you have Costco access it will be £25-30 for 5L.

Asda seem to regularly reduce BMW friendly Castrol Edge oil.

Eurocarparts oil can be cheap if you make sure you google for one of the car forum discount codes.

It is, low saps for partical filter, great price!

Not fully synthetic = only good for lawnmowers

That's a bit harsh. Quite a few mainly older cars run just fine on semi and there's noting wrong with using it as a cheap top up oil if the manual says it's OK.

Also putting something like 0W30 A5/SN in very old car with a worn-out engine can cause more problems than it solves. The detergents and cleansing agents tend to remove carbon deposits, which are often the only things holding it together.

good people to deal with too

you make me get "semi" with comments like that

I called them and the 5-30 isnt for my car but the double price one is ok because of Dexos 2? Im lost.
Ive got a Honda ep3 2006.

I thought Dexos was GM (Vauxhall / Opel) only? But anyway Shell recommends for your Type R either Helix Ultra Professional AG 5W-30 or Helix Ultra SN 0W-20.

W20 is a bit light so if it were me I'd go with W30 for better engine protection.

oO

I keep coming across people who think that there is little difference between the supermarket stuff and the "premium" brands and interestingly I've noticed that it's almost always people who know little about cars saying it. I've even changed the oil for a few of them and when I talk to them weeks later they tell me how their car drives really well and how the engine seems really fluid even "after all this time".

Oh hang on I've just realized, you're the owner of the Type R and you want to put Asda oil in it (!!!!). Things like this is why I tell people never to buy a performance car second-hand.

I'm having an engine rebuild soon and my car is using a litre of oil a week sometimes so i see no point in spending up to £40 on oil to keep it running when i can get it for £20.

People would be ill advised to listen to your opinions as you clearly have nothing of value to contribute.

3 points:

1. You didn't mention an engine rebuild (and I'm not psychic).
2. A car which is 8 years old and which has been well looked after shouldn't need an engine rebuild. And that includes most mass-produced performance cars.
3. I've seen cars drink oil at a frightening rate and the reason for it was poor oil + infrequent oil changes. Cheap oil doesn't lubricate either as well or as long.

But all that said I'm just a qualified guy giving you his opinion and none of what I have said in any way affects your entitlement to be a fool.

You are calling me a fool, what gives you the right to do that?
I didnt need to tell you anything, i was just looking for oil for a car i have.
The car was stolen and is having a rebuild. Perhaps you can suggest the correct oil. I do love a know it all.

Your story gets stranger and stranger.

Car->Stolen. Engine->Ruined (but still driving it oO). Looking for the right oil but don't really care what goes in. oO

If I had engine damage on a car I wanted to keep I most definitely would not drive it.

But hey you're driving it even though it needs a rebuild so why spend all that money? I'm sure Asda sells some "SmartPrice" 20W20 mineral oil or something and anyway it's not as if it's really going to matter.
