I am about to do my first oil change. The Vancouver tells me they use Mob 1, however I have never been a fan of this oil. Is anybody using Motul 300V. I have used it in my STI, Its quite high consumption but very high spec.

I use it and I'll never use anything else. The car's engine runs so smooth on this stuff. I switched to Mobil1 once and it sounded like crap. Never do that again. Motul is all I'll ever use again. You're right, its high on consumption but well worth it!

Evotell, plenty of threads on what oil to use. Two points to watch out for. 1) Lotus only warrants your engine if you use 5W40. 2) zddp content, to protect your second cam. For that reason, quite a few people use Mobil 1 turbo diesel.
