    I got my 2004 Civic Type-S booked in for a service tomorrow (to satisfy the requirements of the warranty I bought) and I was wondering if I need to get the mto put fully synthetic oil in or not ?

    Thanks in advance.

    I recently done service in mine mate ... Eurocarparts had a great offer on shell helix 5w30 ... I think this is a recommended oil for this car

    It was the ultra type stuff ... It was 50% off at the time

    0w-20 or 0w-30 for good fuel economy, thicker oils no point unless you ring the neck of the car all the time.

    I'm ringing the neck outta mine at the mo ... Nearly 10yr old car with 42k on clock and hardly driven hard in all that time ... So new oil is working overtime :Smile:
