    Question Cost of Oil+Filter Change.

    Gonna do another Oil & Filter change tomorrow which will include an upgrade in oil quality.

    I used to buy 20 ltrs @ 20 but know its 4.5 ltrs @ 15.91!! But it is Castrol GTX Magnatex 10w40!

    The oil filter, from Vauxhall, only cost me 1.57.

    How much do you peeps pay for your oil & filters and what oil do you tend to use?

    I'm trade yeah. but sometimes I think my local Vaux don't know how to use there computer to work out discount! There prices seem silly sometimes.

    I could get the Magnatec cheaper as we have it on pump at work but I have to go through the hassle of creating a Job Card if I want to use that so for the sake of a few quid I kept the can.

    Who and what are these "Champion" filters? Where do you get em?

    Done my change this morning and took the car on a 100mile round trip to footie, giving her a bit of welly here and there!

    Boy that Magnatex stinks when it exits my exhaust! The cheaper stuff weren't so bad - but this is potent! hasn't affected me dipstick much tho - strange?????

    Oddball, strangely, I've never been in the parts section of Halfords!

    Are these Champion bits any good? Come to think of it I have heard of their plugs.

    I prefer NGK plugs my self but i suppose thats just my preference. As for oil and filter i use the main dealer stuff.

    8.99 - thats a deal. When I did change a couple of months back I got 5l of Vx 10w40 and filter for 14.99 - I thought that was good. Is this at all dealers?

    If you can get trade out of VX then semi will cost you 7.03 inc vat.
    Fully synth is about 13. I didn't read my ticket.

    I use VX fully synthetic and VX filters. 1.57 for the filter and they lob the copper washer in the box too!

    I reckon the main dealer oil's gotta be good stuff and you really can't beat hte price!
    5litres of FULLY synthetic oil for 13. Cheers Vauxhall. Thanks alot
    I have become comfortably numb....
