    As title really, spotted a poster outside my local "National Tyres and Auto Care" (they're a national brand) saying they did oil changes using Castrol oil.

    So I popped in, gave my reg and the guy said it'd be £43 for oil and filter change , including labour. The oil would be Castrol Edge 5w-40.

    So, any reason why I shouldn't? It's cheaper than I can buy the oil for!

    Unless they let you watch them put castrol edge in yourself i'd steer clear mate, i wouldnt put it past them to not even change the filter, unless they were getting the oil and the filter dirt cheep and i mean dirt cheep, the numbers dont add up
