Guys, I just found a link to the 5W30 fully synthetic oil for £17.50

Halfords | Castrol Magnatec 5W30 Oil 4 Litre

Am I right in thinking this is the correct stuff for my 05 3.0 petrol? Anyone know how much the engine takes to fill?

Hi Bofh,

Have got Castrol Magnatec in my 3.0 sport, according to the
owners manual it takes 6.5 litres including the new filter.

many thanks Steve. I'll be having some of that tomorrow morning then, do you think Halfords might have an oil filter or should I hit the auction site.
I would think Halfords should have a filter, but I'm sure
you'll find cheaper priced filters if you look around.

I got my last one from Unipart.

I would check out your local stealer for a filter and get a genuine one. May cost a bit more but it will be right for the job. Why skimp on something so vital.

Fit genuine filters, they aren't that much more on Ebay.
Good points, I'll have a look at my local dealers for an oil and air filter.
airfilter cost me just over 6 quid over the counter at my local dealer.

I normally get an oil filter with a new sump plug for my engine at every service off ebay from an online jaguar dealer, £8.50 free postage, have a search on ebay. Cheap enough at that price to have genuine parts!
