      Default Oil advice and Recommendation

      If you would like any oil advice or a recommendation for your car please feel free to ask here and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

      To help us to give the most accurate advice possible we do need some information about your car. e.g:

      Make:
      Model:
      Year:
      Engine type:
      Performance modifications:
      Driving style: (road / off-road / track etc)
      Any other information that may be relevant: e.g. approx BHP if modified, oil temps if known
      What recommendation are you looking for? Engine, Gearbox, Diff etc.

      Any oil we recommend is available to buy from us (if you would like to) for delivery throughout the UK and many destinations in Europe. We offer a really extensive range of oils and lubricants from 11 major oil manufacturers at prices much lower than the high street and main dealers. We stock oils and fluids that meet pretty much all manufacturers and international specifications. Our brands include, Silkolene, Fuchs, Gulf, Castrol, Motul, Mobil, Millers Oils, Shell, Valvoline, Amsoil and Redline.

      The good news is, now the Club is a member of our club discount scheme you can discounts of at least 10% across our entire range.

      To redeem your 10% club discount simply use the following club discount code at the checkout.

      MEGANE

      Once the code is added at the checkout you will then receive your extra 10% club discount. However this discount code cannot be used in conjunction with other offer codes, BUT the code can be used in conjunction with any of our offers on this page HERE that do not require offer codes.

      Any questions please ask here or contact us via email at [email protected]

      Finally, if there are any products we don't stock and you have difficulty getting hold of elsewhere, let us know and we'll see if we can stock them.

      We look forward to being of help!

      Cheers
      Guy, Opie Oils

      You can also contact us by phone on +44 1209 202944
      (All oils recommended are available to buy online at my web site)

      You offer a great service, but your prices are really inconsistent.

      Unfortunately, the companies that we deal with don't like us doing constantly low prices, so we have to do discounts by offers.

      Thank you for your response. I though as much. I just find it tedious waiting for 20% offers.

      That said your service is second to none.

      Hi

      Those oils are fine as standard choices, but I would use something a bit higher spec if it spends a fair bit of time on track.

      http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

      Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS NT, Motul 300V, Red Line and Gulf Competition.

      The best proven options for the gearbox are the Red Line MTL, Amsoil MTF or Fuchs Sintofluid. The Millers TRX 75w-80 and Motul Motylgear are good alternatives.

      Thanks for the reply

      The megane gearboxes are known for being rather notchy .

      Which of those would you say will help create a slicker gear change ? I was under the impression motul was good for this

      Hi

      The Red Line is probably the best for that, their oils are very good at sorting out minor gear issues, but as it's a GL4, it might break down quicker than the GL5 oils, due to the LSD.

      Cheers
