To repeat the advice I read elsewhere on this forum, national tyres and autocare have quoted me £54 for oil and filter change using castrol edge 5w30 fully synthetic. This is cheaper than the halfords price for just the oil.
Have a look at www.national.co.uk

Hi All,

For those who like to DIY on oil changes though, the Castrol Edge oil currently has a tenner off at Halfords (£37.59 as as today's date)

Not sure how long the offer is on for.

I have used the Powerenhancer BG 248 in the fuel.

Has anyone found any advantages/disadvantages with using their BG DOC Diesel Oil Conditioner, or is it best to just leave the oil without any additives?

Excellent point Albert, Thanks. :biggrin:

First service being done early next month, will make a point of asking what oil they (Western Nissan, Edinburgh) use.

A friend of mine said he's just seen some 5W30 C3 at Asda for £20 / 5 litres. It is Asda branded. Also, it appears to be a regular thing, not an offer.

Just to add (more) to this post. I bought 2 x 4 litres of fully synthetic 5W30 C3 oil from Tesco today (Tesco branded but hey it meets the spec). 8 litres worked out at £31.84.

Just to complete my earlier post in this topic, had my first service done by Western Nissan, Edinburgh last Thursday. They confirmed that they use the Oil mentioned by Umbongo namely: Nissan's own oil Spec ACEA-C3 Low Ash.

Was impressed by the efficient and courteous service I got, Nissan Micra was the courtesy car and the X-Trail was washed and mini valeted and I got them to change the wheels back to front. All included in the £349.00 3year service pack I bought a year ago at new.
