hi guys

anyone used Excellium SM 5W-30 oil in their car?

LINK to Product (http://www.elfoil.com.au/products/product_Details.aspx?ProdID=209&ProdRange=Cars&ProdCat=engLube&ProdName=elf_Excellium_SM_5W-30)

Just had my car serviced at a new shop as we moved houses and are new in the area and I did not ask what oil they were going to use. Normaly I would have Mobil 1 in my HSV VE Senator (e1)

anyone had experiences with these?

Also need some quotes on brake pads, so far the shop quoted me close to $1000 to replace both front and back. Too much ?

Sorry I am a tight ass :D:D:D

As far as brakes go get in contact with Mark at RB. I think they were around $600 for front and rears combined. Not sure about rotors though.

Hey mate, i have some experience with the ELF oil, used it in my previous car as it was recommended to me by a mechanic, who used to use Mobil 1 and switched to ELF.

The car never skipped a beat, i'll more than likely also be using it in my GTS when its oil change time, but think i'll be going with something like the 10W-40 for the extra protection.
