i recently got an oil change done at Europa Motors on Woodbine and 7, any of guys have any feedback on their work, should I contine to go to them for servicing or is there a place that you guys can recommend better than that....

Also, they changed my oil using ElF Exellium I think the 5w40 Synthetic. Let me know how that is, before I go in for another one.

2nd that. This grade of Mobil 1 has the European LL rating which the 5W30 doesn't have.

Mobil 1 is the most accessible oil. 0w-40 is the best all around type. If I ran Mobil 1 I would run 0-w40 in the winter and their 15-w55 in the summer. I personally use AGIP 5-40 in the winter and AGIP 10-60 in the summer. Its harder to find compared to Mobil 1. Elf is a good synthetic and it is cheaper. My 10-60 runs like 13.50/l list. Thank god I get a discount!!!!!!!!!!
