I spent a lot of time there researching oil specifications for the MA. I just don't think the Selenia is much good, and their insistence on a C3 low saps oil that's designed to keep diesel DPFs happy didn't sit right.

US market Multiairs are always specced "conventional" A3 oils - which are better oils if you're after lubrication and longevity with high sulphur fuel (Australia is a bit backwards in many respects, crappy fuel is one of them...).

I put in what the US dealers are told to use - Shell Helix Ultra 5/40 A3/B4 (which is sold in the US as a Pennzoil). Massive improvement in smoothness and quietness over the Selenia.

An alloy subframe and cast wishbones might be a nice G upgrade too
