Your best off going to a Renault dealer for the servicing as you will get all the latest software updates and if anything does go wrong in our out of warranty it will go in your favour that the car has been serviced in the dealer network. The oil to use, I would use a 5w/30 synthetic ideally a low SAPS oil such as the one Total do. Out of interest what don't you like about your Trafic. Is it the quickshift gearbox.

Think first service was supposed to be at 18000 miles. I did question this but the dealer told me thats what renault reccomended. My Mechanic said lot of the newer vehicles did have what seemed as a late service but i went ahead and got mine serviced at 8000miles and every 8 or 9k since.
