    See opie oils on here. In the traders section. Genuine filter, I use Fuchs Titan.
    6 litres will do you, can keep some for topping up then

    If you want to keep your warrantee intact (just for the sake of Renault not kicking off if something bad did happen), make sure you get the Renault approved stuff. While the Fuchs stuff is no doubt better, they don't have the Renault sign off.

    I used Castrol Edge (Fully Synthetic) 5W40 on my last oil change and it's been fine, it's definately looking a lot better than the Elf stuff that was in there from new.

    But it doesn't have the Renault RN0710 / Renault RN0700 approval. It may exceed them in every single way, but Renault haven't signed it off.

    If they check then then they will refuse any work on it Engine/Turbo i have had this in the past trust me its not worth it
    Shell Helix for me if its good enough for the Ferrari 430/458 then thats good enough for my Meg
