Kind reagards

Hallo Hh,


I didn´t have any oil consumption til yet after 3500 km and two trackdays. After the last trackday in Spa I did have had a Oil change on the recommendation of McLaren. ;)

Viele Grüße

I presume that we'll get an e-mail from Ron when Woking's monitoring systems see that oil level is getting low.....

I was told in confidance that someone arrives in your drive with an oilcan before the end of the day:D,but the more modern system seems more probable;)

What is the factory fill (namely the recommended motor oil weight/spec)?

How do you check the oil level anyways? Sorry... I would go look on my car but unfortunately it is at the dealership getting a check engine light sorted!:mad:

Mobil 1,the best for all high performance turbo engines i think:)
Sorry but I respecfully disagree. There are MANY brands of oils that are far superior to Mobil 1. If you are going to go with M1 then atleast get the Extended performance version which is Fully synthetic. The rest of them has some Dino Oil in them. I will see if I can back up my claims with some data
