Preparing stuff for a little Service

Postby Welly » Thu May 23, 2013 12:31 pm

1 x Air Filter =£17.00
1 x Pollen (multi) filter = £24.00

Pfft, I'd rather the oil was £40.00 or something. It's got to be Fully Syn 0W/30 piss-thin and I need just over 6ltrs at £15.00/l :frown:

I can't be bother to go look what it is but the Yoyo's meant to have something expensive in it, however my buddy Goran in the car spares shop does me cheaper stuff, same grade and everything, for about 30 quid for 5 litres. And it certainly doesn't get the platinum plugs it's meant to have. Piece of crap's lucky to get anything :evil:

I was out with him yesterday, delivering some brake disks up in Svete Jana, and we drove past the mechanic that did my d8's clutch. I didn't know Goran then but apparently the guy has a reputation for taking the nice, expensive oil that you've given him to fill up your pride and joy with, selling it, and filling it up with the cheap stuff he buys by the barrel instead. Oh, and fitting reconditioned clutches but charging for new ones... :shock:

I suppose there's only one way to be sure what you buy goes into your car, and that's to do it yourself. Or do what I do: hang around watching but try not to get in the way. :supafrisk:

The Focus ST uses ford spec 5w30.
Might be an option for the Volvo?

Bailes, I owe you one!

Opie say that 5W/30 is perfect, checked my handbook when I got home and that said 5W/30 too. Volvo did a deal with Castrol in 2005 and only used 0W/30 from that point (no idea why) so that's all the dealers will sell you :|

I've ordered 7 ltrs of Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S Ester Fully Syn 5/30 I've had loads of Fuchs oil for my previous cars so know it's good stuff.

Saved £25.00 AND got the Filter element :mrgreen:

I've just had a bit of luck, while placing the order for the Fuchs stuff I cheekily asked if I could use a discount code........

I got one and it saved me 25% :shock:

I'm now 'up' at least £45.00 and I've got probably the best oil money can buy :mrgreen:

You want Fuchs Titan SYN MC 10W/40 semi-synthetic for yours :wink: get a 'UFI' oil filter too if they list one.

You have a PM from me too.

<steve_earwig> I think this forum is more about keeping our cars going with minimal outlay than giving our cars more reason to go bang
