Engine oil for 1.8 petrol

Hi all I'm going to change my engine oil in the next month or so as I've owned the car nearly 6 months. I purchased the car from a Mazda dealer. They gave it a service but I'm not sure that they used the correct oil. Anyway I've seen some mannol 0w20 on eBay for 22 pounds for 4 liters. Just wanted to ask if anyone else has used this brand of oil. It seems quite cheap for 0w20 oil.

IIRC Honda say you can use 0/20, 0/30, 0/40 and 5/30. 0/30 is what they are filled with at the factory. Castrol, Mobil 1 and Opie Oils all recommend 0/30 too.

Decided to buy the oil and filter from Cox honda Mobil 0w20 oil. For the sake of 20 pounds or so id rather use genuine parts and quality oil.

You know it makes sense.. plus it will have the same additives etc as when Honda did the validation work with the engine..

It does make sense given the price difference is so small between genuine parts and pattern parts. Especially as I plan to keep this one for a good few years. Got the discount added from Cox too.
