worth noting that for a given spec (ACEA rating) most manufacturers will be buying their additive pack from one of only a few specialists (Infineum, Lubrizol) and so there can only be subtle differences in the base-stock...

have always used mobile 1, but check with your dealer for the total oil as you may find its cheaper i know a few guys that have told me they get the oil from the dealer and its around £19-23 :D

Offline nails it- the exhaust aftertreatment spec is critical.

C2 or (better) C3, you'd be looking at Prolife or Syner-Z from Comma. I've used both in the Subaru diesel...

I'm with Gibbo, same with fuel, I tend to go for the cheapest that meets spec, but when it's the same price, I always try and go for the better brand.

In this case, for the sake of £2, I would go for the Total.
