Great deal on Motul X-Cess

Here's a deal on Motul X-Cess that I couldn't pass up:

https://www.amazon.com/Motul-007250-.../dp/B004LEYIQ8

Get it while it's still in effect.

That is a great deal. I am down to six five liter bottles but use this in 3 vehicles so I bought eight 5 liter bottles. Said they only had 11 left. Thanks for the tip.

$41.50 isn't bad at all, especially with free Shipping. Might have to revert back to Motul, one of these days.

The deal I saw on that link and bought was for $37.06 per 5 liter bottle. That is like $7.41 per liter.

I'm still new to this vehicle and want to make sure I'm giving it the best oil. Is this ok to us on my 2012 GTI 2.0T.

Bruh, this thread is like 6 months old. SEARCH!!!

Anyway, any 5w40 or 0w40 FULL SYNTHETIC is fine. I prefer Liquimoli, that shit is amazing. Caster Oil sucks ass and so does Mobil 1

You're not kidding. $33.64 for a 5L jug! Buy 2 and it's free shipping.
