Greetings from Malaysia!

Hi there everyone, my name is Justin. I have not personally owned a MG Rover vehicle but I certainly am aspiring to be one in the future. I am very partial to the Rover 75 V8, though this model is relatively rare over here. Please don't mind me lurking around the forums and asking questions as I am looking to expand my knowledge on these cars before actually taking the plunge to owning one. Cheers!

Quick question (sorry if I'm not posting in the right place!): I know owners are very particular about the engine oils that they use in their cars. As a cost cutting measure, would a regular consumption of normal run of the mill petrol station engine oil such as this one here ( e.g. Shell Helix cause any adverse effects on the engine? Thanks!

I generally think any reasonable oil changed to schedule is ok. After all our cars are getting on a bit now! The k series take 10W/40 - not sure about the V8.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

The 75 and ZT V8's are rare, even in the UK.
