What oil


I have a 2004 54 plate Leon cupra r, completely standard with 89k miles, what oil would you recommend? The car was recently serviced but by a previous owner and I make a point of doing my cars as soon as I get them!

Will be placing an order next week depending on your recommendation

Thanks in advance, Sam

Hi Sam

The oil you need depends on the service schedule the car is on. If it is on an annual/10k miles service, you need an oil that meets the 502.00 specification. If it's the variable service schedule, you need an oil that meets the 504.00 spec.

502.00 -
504.00 -

The 504.00 oils are all good oils, so make your decision based on any brand/price preference you have. With the 502.00 oils, go for a 0w-30, 5w30 or 0w-40 or 5w-40.
