IMHO, yes. KBSC selling fully synthetic of Castrol RS is 10W60.

The most important is the 10W infront. Where else the 60 behiind is refer to temperature only. Msia climate can take between 10-60 but we hardly go down to 10...hahaha...

hello, could anybody paste on here how the Elf Semi-Synthetic bottle look like? I'm thinking on first service (1000km) next week. Thanks.

Furthermore, since I only got free labour charge for 1000km, 5000km and 10000km. Can I bring my own Engine Oil and AT Fluid for service? I want to do the sevice at Jln 222, PJ.

I bought a semi-syntetic elf lub and give the oil to them for oil change. When I get my car back after the service I check the oil and found out it is not the same colour as the oil left in the bottle. The oil color in my car engine is greenish and transparent but the oil left in the bottle is much more like dark green and hardly transparent.

I suspect that have substitute with different OIL !!!! And keep my oil for themself, can it be??????

the best way is after they pour in the oil, take out the dip stick, wipe with a tissue, then do the same sampling at the bottle.

btw, odeon, what color of the bottle of the Elf SS oil u bought?
