    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?

    Dealership oils are okay, but they only meet the spec. Other manufacturer ones tend to exceed one manufacturers specifications as they are usually designed to meet the requirements of lot of specifications.

    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?
