Problem with going down there is I seem to bump into a lot of neighbours that I don't see at any other time. Couple that with the amount I had been saving to get so I could make use of the 5 off 30 voucher and it took me a LOT longer than usual!

    Thanks it was a full service at a local garage. There is no management lights on but it has started sounding a bit gravelly lately which prompted me to check the oil.

    the oil is specific altho I use a better grade than needed


    T's had castrol edge RTC recently...top quality

    went to lidls myself this morning and managed to grab 3 lots of cheese shelf full, but I think it was only because they have put a small label on the shelf and not moved it to the offers section. Also a couple of packs of the choc coated cookies.

    Its a petrol qashqai, I looked up the oil and need 5w40 and see B&M sell it.
    The car seems to be running fine just this gravelly sound like I said, usually first thing until the car warms up.

    the B&M oil would be better than nothing altho cooking oil would be better than nothing!



    the gravelly sound could be anything but yeah could be the oil if only on start up and the oil hasn't circulated


    if it is below the dipstick you need to top asap!

    Biscuits, I'm not a big fan so this is tricky


    1. Chocolate digestive


    2 chocolate fingers


    3 chocolate hobnob (actually this might be number 1)


    Not too bothered with any others although I love coconut macaroons if they count xx
    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Possibly a silly question - was the car parked on a slope, and did you allow time for the oil to settle before you measured it (I don't drive but have just heard these can affect the level.)

    Sorry tweets but I don't like your away kit.
    It looks like it's been in the wash with your home kit.
