Just a quick question but would Mobil Super 2000 semi synth oil bet ok in my 2003 Leon PD130? Had a look and it is listing as a 10/40 and 505.01 but i don't know if i should just go for a 507 oil?

cheers

My car had a longlife service 10k ago. Im now wanting to change the oil as I dont want the same oil in there for 20k and go back to yearly / 10k services (the vw/audi garage I used only did longlife services)

I used castrol edge turbo diesel 5w40 before for topping up and want to confirm this is correct before I buy more for the oil change or is there any better reccomendations? Car is an 07 Ibiza FR PD130 and its remapped and going for stage 2 soon and want the best oil

I think il stick with using longlife oil and changing at 10k intervals, longlife oil is 5w 40 am I right? Is dealer spec oil ok or is there better out there?

What would you reccomend as a longlife oil to use, and would this be ok to replace the oil currently there and the small amount that remains once its been drained

What would u recommend for a pd130 BLT with hybrid turbo full exhaust and intercooler running approx 220 - 240bhp used daily and would be changed every 10,000 miles?
