Oil and filter change
So who knew that my oil change was going to cost me the best part of a year's wages?!!!
My local boys want to charge me £70 plus VAT, our local indy specialist wants £55 all in but will only be using semi synthetic oil.
So here come the questions:
Can I do the change myself and if so what do I need, where is the sump plug etc?
Can I use any fully synthetic oil like Mobil 1 or castrol RS or should I go for the Selenia (I don't believe the dealer who sold me the car used Selenia in the last service because they weren't Alfa boys and girls).
And finally, is it an easy job? I am relatively au fait with these things but I get frightened of playing with my Alfa (1997 GTV 2.0TS), it's not as easy to tinker with as my Seat was!
Any help would be appreciated.
