How good is that 18 quid black can oil? It has the VW 502.00 specs but I don't want to buy bad stuff.


I've been using various Halfords fully synth for over 12 years. I usually get the Ford or Vauxhall 5w30/40 as it's often cheaper than the regular flavour.

If it meets your spec then it's ok.

Any offer on oil for an 05 petrol BMW? I normally fill with 0w30 Castrol fully synthetic, but might sell the car this year.

I've bought this stuff for my 325i. It's BMW LL04 spec. So it should be perfect. I've been using halfords oil for 5 years in my car. Never any issues.

I've been using the Ford spec synt oil in my HDi Citroens for a while. It's been running fuss free.
