Me and my baby are running towards the 30k km and our 1st service.
As we all know all the fiat corp works "only" with selenia, which has, in my opinion
prices, somebody (ergo the dealer) is screwing everyone over and over IMHO (the price is 3x higher than anyother good branded oil)
...sooo, I have a posibility of getting the Mobil synt s 5w40 almost for free or paying 97eur for 6L of selenia at our local alfa dealer.
I have checked the mobils specs and it is rated as a great oil and it even has 19% of ESTER (Ester - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
), which I believe selenia has under 10% (cant find any tests confirming that)
so my question to you is; has anyone tried anything else than selenia on your JtdMs ???
How is it working out?
I also have a possibilty of getting the castrols Edge TD 5W-40 or Valvoline Synpower 5w40 but I believe that mobil has just better oil.
...when i mentioned my dealer that I will bring my own oil he first said that I would have VOID warranty because of that, later on he offered me 20% discount on selenia!!!
Please post your expirience/ opinion.
i forgot, the specs:
