Hi All

I recently bought a gen3 coupe and changed the oil with 10W/40 semi synthetic

The oil it came with was like tar. After the oil change i've noticed increased tappet noise, i guess the old oil was masking this -

do people generally have problems with noisy tappets ?
And do these cars use hydraulic or regular tappets ?

Also i'd be really interested to hear what oil ppl are putting in these engines as well

Cheers! any help/comments much appreciated

If your old oil was badly degraded, then it may well have gummed up the action of the tappets.
In most cases the new oil will eventually free of the tappets and (comparative) silence will return.
