Hi Peter, pleased to help but you don't say what country you are in - that would be interesting to know thanks. I used Amsoil 100% synthetic 5W-30 oil & the Amsoil EAO Nano Fibre Filter. The dealer for the oil was local here in Christchurch, New Zealand so that was handy: http://syntheticoil.co.nz/
It is the most expensive oil / filter I've ever bought! But hopefully will do a good job. Oil + filter was about $140. I got a 15% discount as I also ought the auto transmission oil.
Have recently replaced the factory radio/DVD/Nav system with a no-name Android operating based system so that went well and am getting that set up now.
The attached files will help with oil selection.
All the best, Tony
