I heard that Costco are cheap for oil. Only problem is you need a membership card. It would help if you knew someone who has membership. I'm going to check them out as my wife has a card. :)

Went to Bolton Audi yesterday to pick up my oil and filter with a sump plug and while the bloke was serving me he asked if I wanted any oil, so I asked him what oil and how much. He told me they sold Shell Helix ultra fully synthetic 5w30 for £17.5/litre :eek: :eek: :eek: so I told him I can get the same stuff for £42 (5 litre). He told me to wait a minute while he spoke to his manager, he came back 30 seconds later and said we can do it for £7.6/litre so it came to £38 for 5l :eek: :eek: :p :p, I told him I'll have that, I even asked if thats the best he can do (being cheeky), he told me he has never sold this oil this cheap before. A bit of a bargain from the stealers!!! was well happy with that. :p :p :p :p :p

I always end up using opie oils.

Sign up as a member - put ********.co.uk in.

Then go to "service packs" and you get 6 litre of oil and a filter for about £45

Sometimes less than buying 5litres of oil on its own!

For the VW stuff, try: http://www.vwspares.co.uk/product_info. ... ts_id=1141
I just went to the Opie oils site, I can't find the 6 litre service packs? I can only find the recommended TT service packs which only contain 4 litres of oil, surely the TT needs 4.5L oil if your changing the filter. So when Opie oils say plenty and spare, either i'm wrong or they are.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

hmmm seems they have changed it, I can only see a 4litre pack. Last I bought was 5l + a 1l bottle.
