Yeah Danny T is a nice touch.

Not too sure about the GW oil though.

Maybe this is last week's news (or heaven forbid even earlier) but saw in a Repco catalog we received at some point recently that Vavloline's XLD 15w40 is running $17.99 for 5L. Interestingly, they didn't list A3/B3 with the oil.

Shame I'm still ages away from doing an oil change. That Valvoline MaxLife 20w50 is definitely on my radar. Noticed during the 2500km on EngineArmour that the crud in the oil filler area under the valve cover has cleaned up considerably. Dunno what the valvetrain looks like, but I'll find out soon enough when I do the valve cover gasket (again).
