I usually use mobil 1 5w40 and the m1-209 filter thats recommended by lotus. Autozone has a special on any valvoline synthetic plus a filter for $30. Does valvoline have a combo that just as good or better than the mobil 1 combo? If not then Ill just pay extra and stick with the norm.

I was just at a jobber show and bought a bunch of valvoline synthetic 5/40 for my 2005 elise. The rep said it is the exact same product they make for BMW with a different label. Works for me.

Happy Motoring.

I used valvoline for the first 20K then switched to amsoil european car 5w40, I cant tell the difference they are both just fine, the valvoline is a little easier to find, but the Amsoil arrives at the front door. much easier
