Nice one Ash. It's excellent value actually and excellent oil too, but it's a shame they don't make it in a 6 lt. I suspect the marketing boffins rubbed their hands in a fiendish manner when it was time to market as most tend to do so If you need 6.1lt for example, like we do, You then have to purchase 2 x 5 lt or an extra 1 lt, which then makes it a foregone conclusion. I hate when they do this.

I do however see my BMW oil is on special.

 CASTROL EDGE 5W40 A3/B4 SN 6L ENGINE OIL 3414527
$64.99 down from $79.99

There's also a recall notice at the top of the page for Tectaloy coolant.

I got the catalogue in the mail a couple days ago, The sale starts today :-) https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/nulon-nulon-full-synthetic-long-life-engine-oil-5w-30-6-litre/343508.html

That Magnatec is the Euro spec oil A3/B3 which may be better suited to their cars, I'm not sure as I've never used the ACEA spec oils on our Japanese cars which list the API / ILSAC specs only. The A3

I agree Ash, I thought the exact same. I think most Black Friday Sales in Australia are bit lack luster to say the least.

Your welcome mate. I didn't need any either, but I did grab a couple for my Dad's Aurion as it's nearing it's 80k service. I decided to just keep using the Nulon for my car and use the Penrite for Dad's.

There were also times just recently where I could have also used some brake cleaner instead of degreaser but I wasn't going to pay 7 bucks a can for the stuff so thankfully this came at the right time.

The beauty about brake cleaner is that it has the magical ability to clean soiled or oily surfaces by evaporating the grime without the need to degrease then rinse and have water everywhere. Great for those little DIY jobs where you just want to keep things simple. 10 cans will ensure I don't run out in a hurry. Don't you hate it when you really need something and it's either you don't have any or the last can you have has almost nothing left in it 🙄

Have you tried using liquimoly engine oil?

I'm thinking of trying this one in the near future (the liquimoly australian website doesn't have the 5w30 in this oil as a recommendation for my car, it does for their other oils https://www.liquimoly.com.au/oil-finder ) 😞

I've never tried it, but I have heard excellent reviews and feedback about the brand. Unfortunately, I don't have enough cars to be able to use the various brands as I don't like to mix oils. 

My Aurion has always had the Nulon, my Dad's Aurion I'm using the Penrite and my garage Queen M3 only uses Castrol as recommended by the factory. If I had to use another oil for the M3, it would definitely be Liqui Moly.

There is also a youtuber who restores 80'-90s BMWs and he swears by this stuff. Uses it everywhere.

Can't go wrong if the label states "manufactured in GMBH". 

I don't think too many people know about Liqui Moly and probably why we don't see a broader range here. It is big in Europe.

Nice :thumbsup:

I've got enough, even though it was tempting, I had to refrain this time :laugh:

50% off is the best time to take advantage. I will never pay full price for the stuff. You'd be mad too really.
Sales will and do come around, so best to be patient and perhaps stock up a little to get you by when your oil service comes before the sales.

Yep, I saw this yesterday too and didn't think anybody would be interested. I forgot you use Shell Ash. 50% off, how can anyone resist ?

I have been in a self-imposed financial lockdown to reduce my hoard of oil and spare parts etc. I did resist but then decided that I will mark these containers with the purchase date so they are last in line to be used.

Shell Ultra X has the latest SN Plus oil specification and produces proven results to clean my engine. Price of $38.99 after the 50% discount was enough to open the wallet.

Good thinking. I should've done that too. I think I know which is the oldest by the amount of dust accumulation :biggrin:

ATF LV is $39 for Ignition members. Last time it was $36.. Price creep here we go again..

More of an unstated discount for this sale. I have enough on hand to wait for a better discount sale @ 30%;= $36+ 

I also have enough engine oil on hand so I can afford to be particular and wait for 40% or 50% discount price.

After a bit of recent research, I am now using full synthetic 5W-30 engine oil in the four stroke mower engines.
