I've found it pays to provide your own oil which meets car manufacturer standards.

I once got stung (during the warrenty period) by a Vauxhall dealership charging the per litre bottle price as sold in their accessory shop for GTX oil rather than the 5l bottle price. They overfilled it & charged me for the priviledge (but thats another story).

I ALWAYS supply the oil now - usually Castrol RS or Mobil-1. Often get told "it doesn't need that" but why not if its cheaper than the dealer provided oil !

Currently in John J's garage:
Family car - 2004 3.0dCi Grand Espace. Fun car - Calibra 4x4 Turbo
