Got the HX8 oil and went to a shell bunk to get the oil replaced but they refused since I didn't purchase it from their outlet. So got it done at a FNG.

If the seats are also fine, you might consider getting the brakes checked and cleaned.
Went back to the tire alignment guys and they showed me what the issue was. Went into the alignment pit with the car over head. They parked the car in gear without the hand brake on and two guys rocked the car from either side. The loud creaking sound was emanating from the rear axle mounts/ bushes. Turns out the MASS guy was right.

Any idea if a replacement bush kit for the rear axle is available and how much it will cost to fix this? MASS guy quoted 12k for the entire rear axle, and said they don't change bushes separately.

Drove about 35km after the oil change. The engine does seem more eager and the clutch has a sharper bite to it now. This might sound like an exaggeration but I unintentionally wheel spun from a green light and it caught me unaware with its response in 2nd gear

Must just be my mind playing tricks on me. That or maybe it's because the air filter has been replaced and the motor breathes better now. Gear engagement is smooth maybe a tad slicker.
