Castrol magnatec 5w30 fully synthetic.
You'll need about 4 1/2 litres.

Try and find someone with a Halfords Trade Card, always knocks the price down a bit (paid £30 for 5 litres of the stuff for my recent service).

Whereabouts are you?

If you're anywhere near Warrington, I have a 4-litre Castrol Magnatec 5w/30 full-synthetic (Ford specification) that I bought a few months ago, but no longer need.

Drop me a PM if you're interested.
