I would go with the Motul 8100 Xcess 5w-40 http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Thanks for clearing that up mate, i am about to purchace from you now


Edit: Dont know if im being stupid but im trying to register as a saxp member but what do i need to put in the "membership number" field? Ive had a search through your threads and cant find the answer, or was thinking is it my number? I have had a look for this aswel and cant seem to find it.

I have also foung a kind of bug that i thaught i would let you know about. When you click the button to bring the details down for the delivery, the very last bit, it refreshes the whole page and got rid of my password which i entered earlier
Will check this thread in the morning. Cheers

Ordered just now bud. I missed out on the discount on that oil and now the coupon "CARGIFT" has run out too. Never mind its still a good price.

Was wondering how long do you think it will be? Should it be here by sunday?

Cheers

Sadly the halfrauds stuff is not a true synthetic and made to a low cost.

Next time treat it to something like this http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-877-motu...synthetic.aspx

Cheers

A good 5w-40 synthetic is ideal, have a look at Fuchs, Motul, Mobil and Silkolene here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers
