Hey Lads.... the bora is due a service pretty soon... Just wondering what oil to use in it? i used Mobil 10w40 semi syn the last service... tis is the second service i've had the car..

The car is running fine with the 10w40.. just my concern is on cold starts it's noisy and making loudish clicking sound for about 10 - 15 seconds then disappears.. i'm think it may be that the oil isnt getting round the engine quick enough?

The car is a 2001 Bora Tdi (Alh) (90bhp)with 151k miles

What oil do you's reccommend?

Or Can anyone tell me what oil oil came in the ALH from factory?

Thanks in advance... Any info is very much apprecited.. :)

Have a google for "VW quantum oil"

It's the one in the gold container.. about 25/30 quid for 5 litres i think [:)]

Beats the 50 odd quid halfords want for their brand of oil...
