      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>       

Castrol Edge Oil Bargain at Tesco - 504 / 507 / 503 01

Just a heads-up about a potential mis-pricing at Tesco.

I just picked up a 1 Litre tub of Castrol EDGE 5W-30 for [b]£3.33 [/b] :rofl: (they usually charge £16)!

This stuff meets VW 504 00 / 507 00 & 503 01 so will be useful to a few on here, e.g. Octavia vRS Variable Servicing oil / top-up.

Look out for the stuff with the older style Castrol EDGE packaging, it should have the following barcode number: 5 010321 000103

The newer packaged stuff is priced at the usual £16 and can be identifed with a red stripe at the front with a spiel on it about fully synthetic. The barcode also ends in 104....shove it out the way and dig to the back of the shelf to find all the older stuff with slighty different packaging.

The shelf price shows £16 but you can check at the self-service checkout. It was a 24-hour Tesco Extra in Alloa that I've already cleared out, but its worth checking your local one for the same stuff (at hopefully the same price).

Can confirm other Tesco stores have the same price on certain bottles of 1-litre, Castrol Edge 5W-30 (barcode 5 010321 000103).

Just picked up another six at £3.33 each. Considerable cheaper than anywhere else, in fact the dealer charged over £50 for five litres of 5W-30 at my last service.

Wow! You must use a lot of oil. I've used about half a litre to top up over the last 2 years (11,000 miles) in my 1.8TSI. Works out about £3 a year so far. Edited by Mison

take 4 * 1L along to a service and that's a big discount on the oil :)
