    Hello folks,
    I switched to wurth fully synthetic oil 5w 40, with oil flush and additive,
    Costing around 3k for all,
    Used 1k kms, car feels a bit more silent and harshness is reduced a bit.
    Will update the long term usage report.

    Are there any specific benefits for the switch over? Where was this done at FNG or FASS??

    Well I have STP oil flush and oil additive.
    I poured 3 litres of oil and 200ml of additive. Almost every mechanic I asked about the oil, they said its the best.so, took the plunge.

    Well, I found the harshness and engine noise is more is selina, so opted.
    Well as I mentioned earlier, I can feel its bit more smooth.though it is initial impression. Have to drive it to observe more.got it done at fass.

    After having driven for around 6000 kms I can now confirm that there is not much change between Selenia & Shell Helix Ultra. I wanted to try Rimula R4L but its not available in retail packings in Mumbai.

    Try using Motul 4100. Its 15W40 diesel specific oil. For the price its a good oil of higher spec. Except perhaps not best for regular very cold or freezing conditions at startup.

    Dear all, I haven't gone through the entire thread, but can someone quickly guide me on choosing a right economical engine oil which is good for my car as well as my pocket. Mine is a Punto Dynamic, 3rd service is pending and clocked 14k+ km.
