    Just bought some of this liquid gold from Costco £30 incl. VAT what a bargain. Don't think you can get it cheaper anywhere else.

    My 2000 9-5 2.3 lpt (Hirsh chip)is coming up due for its 114,000 service soon. Is Mobil 1 0W-40 too thin? would I be better with 5W-30 or 5W-40 oil (full synthetic of course). If I used Mobil 1 0W-40 in my old V***o V70 T5R it ended up all over the drive (it did have 170,000 miles on it...

  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, The oil in my car has been in for a year / 6000 miles so is due for a change. I am aware it needs Fully Synthetic, So I was looking around and know Mobil 1 to be decent. But what grade should I use in my car with relatively high mileage at 125k? Halfords are doing 5L for £39.99 at the...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I usually change my own oil but yesterday I thought I would give Kwik Fit a call for a price..... I was quoted £39.00 for Mobil 1 including the filter !! The only thing that puts me off is the fact that the person I was talking to had no idea if Mobil 1 was semi synthetic or fully synthetic...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Has anyone got any advice as to where's the cheapest place to get the synthetic oil needed for a 2.0T Aero oil change (6 litres). It's a pain cause mostly it's sold in 4litre or 5litre cans... thanks Mark
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    With the price of petrol dropping (temporarily) has anyone seen the price of Mobil 1 or similar synthetic oil dropping. I change mine every 6000 and I,m seeing £45 to 55 for 4/5 litres when I used to pay around £30?
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 2005 9-3 with a 2.0t turbo 175 hp, and the manual states to use SAE 0W-30, SAE 5W-30 or SAE 0W-40 engine oil. The posts that I have read seem to lean towards using Mobil 1 SAE 0W-40 oil, but does anyone have experience with using the new Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy SAE 0W-30? It also...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I've got a question regarding engine oil; there appears to be strong recommendations from various people to use Mobile 1 engine oil. Having now looked up the types, there appears to be two types that may be applicable; Mobile 1 0W/40 and Mobil 1 ESP 5W/30. I know that my hand book (3.0 TiD)...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have been looking for Mobil 1 for my regular 6 monthly oil and filter change. Prices seem to have shot up. I was quoted £39, £44 and £49 for 4 litres. So I tried ebay - £30 including delivery, arrived 2 days later in perfect nick Sorted

    Hi all, Have seen some Saab 5w-30 turbo oil over on elk parts web site @ £24 for 4 this stuff as good as Mobil 1? If it is , seems pretty good value. Any advise; Mitch

    I've jsut been into Halfords for some Mobil 1 0/40, but they only seem to be stocking turbo diesel in this spec'. Do you think this is meant for turbos AND diesels, rather than turbo-diesels? Thanks Kev

    Just wondered if any of the big chains like halfords, etc, were offering deals on mobil 1 0/40 at the moment? Last lot I got a while back from halfords for about £35 with 1 liter free Cheers Kev

    Oil change time - does anyone know of any good deals on 0W40 Mobil 1?
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have just been to my local ASDA and discovered that they are selling Mobil 1 5w-50 ( yes that's 5w-50 and not the 0-40 )for £17.99 which is half price. It is fully synthetic using the new SuperSyn technology. I know there are a lot of Mobil 1 fans on this site so just thought I'd pass the info...
