Just got my first paid service done. Couldn't get Magnatec in time so had to make do with the reg servo oil........ but man the service charges are INSANE. 575 bucks for service! How much do other guys pay.

btw JK they have charged me for 3.1 L of oil.

Hey mohit , Great link

And as JkD recommend Magnatec is awesome, the car just feels smooooooooth after the oil change and stp treatment. The engine picks up speed without any whining whatsoever. i'm really glad with this purchase.

slk, any idea abt the diffrence btw GTX Mag and ordinary Mag?

and can you post the grade of that?

Think hyundai recommends 20W50, but Magnatec is 10w50 (or 40)
