I've been using Carlube 5W-40 for the past few servicing. I'm v satisfy with the performance. My previous ELF, Mobil-1 & current Carlube make no difference to me in terms of performance. But price-wise, is so much cheaper!

I'll go for my recommended VW502.00 spec
which is Carlube, also notice the cheaper

Besides, Carlube isn't a small company.... it is made by: http://www.tetrosyl.com/
they have been advertising extensively on Premership football stadiums. The
was developed with Lotus Motorsports, and used by the TVR racing and Morgan racing teams....
