Hmmm 156 Oil change (on a diesel)

156 Oil change (on a diesel)

I want to give my 156 an oil change and I need to know a couple of things

1. Which is the best/correct oil to use?
2. What is the correct torque setting on the oil drain plug?
3. What is the correct oil filter to use?

And finally

4. Would anyone recommend changing the glow plugs whilst I am doing this?

My car has 40k and is a 156 Saloon 1.9 JTD 16v Multijet Lusso 4d
