Postby VOLVOREUTER » Wed Mar 02, 2011 7:43 pm

Hi just wondering has anyone used Castrol Edge Sport when servicing their Altezza?? I'm hapy enough to use the Castrol Edge 5W 30 just wondered if anyone had used the Edge Sport stuff and were they happy with it? I know the differences would probably be very minor between these 2 castrol products interested to know tho if anyone had used the Sport stuff

I have found 5W30 very light in my car I found the car a bit louder ticking over & the 10w40 had the car ticking over quieter??

I use 5w30 Edge Sport in mine. Very good oil. Even after 10,000 km you could still see through it. It should be good for 15K-20K.
They're pretty much the same oil just have slightly different specs, nothing to worry about unless you've got a late model euro

I use castrol magnatec 5w30 find its fine good for mileage, i used the edge 5w30 and found its was too light for the car and was a bit noisey and used up oil quickly.
