Selenia WR 5w-40 is the recommended oil to use it's £41.00 + VAT for 5L from the dealers. You can use other oil brands with the following classification (SAE 5W40 - ACEA B3 API CF). With regards to glow pugs they are available from the dealers at £15.90 + VAT each (Part number 46792355) but whether or not they are the best or not I couldn't tell you. I only ever fit genuine parts as I've used cheaper alternatives in the past and found they usually don't last half as long.

Hope this helps.

That's not right, 10-40 semi synth is recommended for the 2.4 JTD 10v. I use Halfords | Mobil Super 2000 X1 10W/40 Oil 5L and it does the job perfectly well. Regular oil changes a good idea with any turbo car of course.
