    Discussion - High Performance Engine Oil

    We are undertaking a market research project looking at attitudes to high performance engine oil among owners of prestige/sports cars.

    To facilitate this, we are holding a number of focus (discussion) groups in St Leonards on Monday 4 June and Tuesday 5 June 2001 in the early evening. There will be approximately 8 people in each group, led by a moderator. Refreshments will be provided and the meeting will last for approximately one and a quarter hours. We anticipate a friendly, informal discussion between people enthusiastic about their cars and keeping them maintained to a high standard.

    We are offering $100 cash as a thank you to participants, which will be given to them at the conclusion of the discussion. I assure you that this is not a marketing attempt - no effort will be made to sell or promote any product and individual names and comments will be kept entirely confidential.

    I would be delighted if any members of your club who are interested in participating in this project could telephone me on (02) 9969 5500, day or evening, weekday or weekend - as soon as possible as the meetings are early next week!

    Regards
    Mary

    Hi Guys,

    this sounds extremely dodgy to me. No-one gives away $100bucks for nothing. It's probably another pyramid scheme selling additives. I'd avoid......

    I know Peugeot's are the only French marque that are considered prestige/sports cars but gibgib, i think this would be better placed in the general forum, will you do the honours...if you want to keep it.

    Hey Mary,
    If you're heading Central Qld Coast give us a call. Pretty hungry up here; who knows, for TWO hundred you could get a couple of footy players may go the full Monty & make the night really interesting

    If you don't sign anything to get the dosh there shouldn't be a problem???
    They will most probably get quite a few takers on this
    $100 is worth chuckin' a sickie for

    Andreas you now have "The Power" to move/ delete stuff if you so desire. Administration options down the bottom of this page.

    For performance oil I use Cadillac Oils from Regency Downs in the Lockyer Valley. Magic stuff, with a guarantee that the quality won't drop off when the guy has a good clientele (this is what happened with his former employer, Respect Oils at Rocklea).

    The range is very wide, it's all from a top line blender who puts all the guarantees behind it.

    So you might say, "why go to Cadillac if others have the same stuff?" Well, like I said, the guy who runs the show, George, is very honest and has built the business on quality and integrity.

    If you're in the Brisbane area or Gold Coast, it's not a long drive, buy 20 litres at a time. This stuff really makes a difference, on one car I had a fuel consumption improvement of around 10% (thoroughly checked, and all I did was change the oil) over 1000km before and after the oil change.
