A couple oil ???'s

So I'm going to buy everything to change the oil, plugs and filters today and am wondering which oils. I know Mobile1 is a good choice, so I should get the European Car Formula 0w40? How about Mobile1 filters? Advance has a special going on right now that gets 5qts and a filter for $27.99. I've always used Puroilator Pure One filters, but I don't think they can be used w/ this deal.

I buy Purolator PureOnes - PL15436

Amazon.com sells a set of two PL15436 filters for $13.20 Plus, they include the large O-ring for the filter cap! The Purolator Clasic is only $9.06 for a pair but I don't know if they come with the O-rings included.

Combine them with something else to get the total order above $25 and shipping is free.

The above filter numbers are for the 2.0 Litre L4, not the V6.

PureOne filters are real good. Wix or Napa Gold (they're the same fitler w/ different names on the them) are also very good. I've ran those on my MC's and my Z and always had good results.
I have used OEM and Napa Gold, and honestly the Napa filter is much higher quality at less than 1/2 the price. These filters (Napa Gold) have performed very well in multiple tests. Plus they come with the O Ring:D

Nice.
I tried GS OE Filter and was charging me $14 shipping online check out.
I just ordered it along with other stuff for the same amount of s/h.
I'll try NAPA next time.
Can't get wrong with Mobil 1 Full Synthetic. Try Royal Purple, Amsoil, RedLin or Neo.

I get a few at a time online, you can get them from www.genuinesaab.com www.thesaabsite.com www.eeuroparts.com and several other sites/

I do this too, I think eeuro gives you free shipping when you buy more than 50 bucks worth of stuff (easy to do if you buy plugs or a filter while you're there).

I believe that the MANN filters from eeuro come with the O ring that you need to seal the cap. Since this is your first time, you probably want to buy a couple of the little rubber seals for the drain plug too. Both these and the O ring are re-usable (unofficially), but it's good to have spares on hand if the old one looks beat.
