Good idea for the intermediate oil change.

However the MINIMUM Oil viscocity used in the 1.9/2.2DCi MUST be Fully Synthetic 5W40..

10W40 is not good enough to protect the DCi engine, particularly the Turbo bearings.
I Don't want to be too negative but I have changed toooo many Turbo 's & Engines due to premature failure caused by incorrect oil being used, along side the extended service intervals...
