    They are not very fussy on coolant.

    Regular blue glycol, or OAT is fine. Important thing is not mix different types of coolants. Always drain and replace if you are unsure what is in there.

    Hi

    Not really. The Syn 5 has probably been the most popular over the years, but there's not a lot in it.

    Hi

    I'd probably see what it's like with a 5w-40, but if you find it burns a lot of oil, then a 10w-50 is a better option.

    Hi Simon

    The VR1 20w-50 is really good stuff, but not for your car. It gives very little cold start protection, so not a good option for a daily driver.

    A 10w-50 is ideal for your car and these...

    Hi

    A quality oil like the Pro S will hold it's viscosity better when hot, so no need to worry about the track use.
