$32 Oil change Castrol/Mann

Advance auto parts has Castrol syntec oil on sale 5qt with K&N filter for 29.99. This is the oil that meets our spec and since K&N doesn't do a filter for our car they will sub in the Mann factory filter for the same deal.

I picked up 2 oil changes today on sale.

Do the Mann filters they carry have the same check valve the oem ones have?

VW 502

If you're going to get Castrol, use the 5w-40 weight. It is the European formula and VW 502 approved.

Thanks for the heads-up. Picked up two of the deals, unfortunately they were kinda ridiculous about not subbing in the Mann filters. Something about falsifying inventory. Grabbed the K&N's for some friends' cars instead.

Eh, thats a load of bull on their end. I work for Advance, and if they aren't lazy they can do it.
