    I found this oil at the following link, www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20-L-Genuine-Mercedes-Benz-5W30-Low-Ash-SAPS-Engine-Oil-MB229-51-Fully-Synthetic/253676797445?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

    I just wanted to point out the price which, I thought was fantastic, considering everyone else seems to be selling for at least double that price.
    The thing that made me go ahead was the vendor had a 100% positive feedback rating, so, everything looks spot on.
    My "It looks to good to be true" radar is pinging though, tbh I rarely ever find bargains online that's the main reason but, it would be good if some more of us got the benefit too, here's hoping everything is ok.
    I'll post as soon as I get the oil and let you guys know how it all goes.

    ^ That is a brilliant price for 20 lts Jim. It's good stuff too.
    I use the 5w40 229.5 for petrol engines and the best I could find last Jan was £54 and the price has gone up considerably.

    Very cheap! I buy this in 210 litre barrels, two at a time to get the best possibly discount, and I'm paying 40% more than that!

    Edit- just checked. It's 40%, not 50%, but still!

    After joining the forum I was checking out what was the best oil for my car and this was recommended by almost everyone. When I saw it at that price I jumped at the chance. Initially I thought I might have boobed, mainly because I usually shoot myself in the foot when I get a "bargain" but, this looks to be on the up and up (for a change) :D:D

    At that price I wish I had the money to buy two, that'd equate to just under 5 oil changes, lol. At a great price too.

    I saw a similar deal last week and avoided it , but because the seller (same pic again ) used the same picture as another seller called southern commercials who is a reputable dealer , in my opinion its too cheap , so i would be interested if it works out . In which case i'll buy some :D.
    Its also the newly branded containers . Good luck with it , its a great price .

    Suspect this is a compromised account, that previously had it listed and they have dropped the price and changed the paypal address.

    I have bought one, and the payment is stuck in "not accepted" which I have had happen in previous circumstances.

    I bought one and just had an email from Ebay saying that an unauthorised third party may have accessed the sellers account to list this item. It goes on to say you maybe protected by Ebay and to open a request with the resolution centre. I went on my paypal account and saw that the money had not yet been collected by the seller, so I cancelled the transaction and got my money back.
    I forgot the old adage (or got greedy coz it was stinking cheap) "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is"

    I have now received the same message from E-Bay and I'm just about to try the same course of action that you took. Here's hoping, fingers crossed.

    Ah good (I hope), now showing cancelled purchase and refund of £29-99 on my PayPal Account.

    I've never had any problems before with E-Bay and, never had to do a claim or anything in all the time I've used it.

    Can anyone tell me does the refund stop and stay in my Paypal account or will it be returned to my Credit card which supports the PP accnt?

    The next time my "Too good to be true" radar starts pinging, I'm going to Bl**dy listen to it! :mad::mad:

    Just lucky to get away with it, as it were, this time.

    Sorry for providing a bad link guys, I thought I was helping folk out too. :oops::oops::oops:

    Looks like the account of the original link is still hacked as there is a 20 L listing still showing at £25.99...maybe we all need to report it?

    They are not approved but self certified by the manufacturer ( Tetrosyl ) to
    ' meets or exceeds the requirements of.. ' .

    Gaining approval costs huge sums of money which then usually the product is marketed at a higher price .

    I've used Asda VW 504.00 507.00 for quite some time .

    229.51, upgrade to 229.52 .

    If you want more protection
    VW 504.00 507.00 .
