Oil weight is a value range. The only thing that weight means is that whatever viscosity the oil is at a certain temperature fits between...

This is generally regarded as being slightly better, they are a somewhat similar viscosity given the Castrol is on the thicker end of a 30...

Buyers on Facebook are on another level though. I recently tried selling a car worth a couple of grand on it and one of the better offers I...

Haha, it's amazing how I can park 50m from any other vehicle in a car park and when I come out of the store someone has parked right next...

Yeah, for those that actually care about their paintwork it's not a good idea, but realistically most people don't.

If anyone that managed to get this deal wants to offload one for a fair price hit me up.

Anything Apple is usually excluded from most stores sales anyway so I don't think it's much to hold against them.
