I have used Fuchs Titan Pro S for a few years and would not use anything else in my cars - not cheap but I have never been a believer in putting anything but the best in the engine

Engine Oil, Motor Oil, Gear Oil, Car Oil, Motorbike Oil from oilman at Opie Oils always stock it

5w-40, 10w-40. 10w-50 or 10w-60 will all be fine.

But not 5w-30 (At least in the UK climate)

If it was me I would go for the 5w-40 for road use and 10w-50 for track days etc...
