I normally use the 15W50.

would 10W60 be ok i am thinking it might be too thick for normal driving.

Cheers

I would stick to what's recommended to be honest - Royal Purple XPR Yes

Having said that I am running Valvoline VR1 20/50 and it's been in the engine for a while with no problems. As soon as I get the time I will switch back to XPR

I dont exactly redline the car anyway...
