    Hey GavTS. I would say there are a few anyway. Haven't my Accord that long but as its a diesel I will be sticking to Honda parts. For oil I ordered it from Lubetech (25 litres)in the UK(affiliated with AOCUK) . Castrol edge 0w-30 ain't cheap here and it takes nearly 6 litres. They were super quick and is a huge saving especially if your doing the work yourself .

    Thanks mcgowanp, I'll check out Lubetech as you're right engine oil seems to be fairly over priced here and buying 25L would last me a good while.

    I think 0w-30 oil is expensive no matter where you live. Castrol £45 for 4 litres, I think not!!!!

    I see Halfords have a deal on it.. 47 euro for 4 litres.. I sure they can't keep it on the shelves !

    I use Tony at Lubetec from here for all my oil needs. I am a fussy git and won't buy crude. This oil is as good as Castrol and i ent get my 0-30 anyware else now. Will be buying the rest of the family's oil there to. He us a nice guy u should give him a go with the club discount it is very reasonable..

    For my 2.4 Tourer Petrol, good old 10w40 in the local motor factors, hard to beat in terms of price. For Honda parts, I used Gowan Motors, D15.

    I serviced my neighbours Nissan pixo last weekend, infact I have serviced it since new it never been in to a dealer for repairs.

    Nissan spare part cost is so cheap its amazing a tub of 5 litres 10-40 oil is 9 quid yes 9 quid!! oil filter ( cheap and nasty made in India) 4 quid. 5 litre coolant 11 quid.

    All this were genuine Nissan parts too from the main dealer. next time you want lube and coolant and you don't want to spend Nissan parts the way to go cheaper than halfords.

    9 quid for oil? Taking off VAT and dealer margin Nissan are probably selling it for a fiver. What sort of oil do you get for a fiver?
    Wow
     
  12. GavTS Club Member ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    Yeah, 9 quid!!!! I wouldn't trust £9 oil in my car but I'd have no problem putting it in my neighbors car :Rolf:

    @Garrydhu there is a 'members map' so you can see where people are...I think it often gets missed.
