Type of Oil / Filter / etc. for 2018 Velar V6

Post by carbro1 » Fri Jan 04, 2019 3:40 pm

Hello All,

Looking for some help.
Does anyone know what kind of oil and oil filter (and whatever else needed) for an oil change?

I am looking to change my own oil to avoid a trip to the dealership.

I have a 2018 Velar V6

Please let me know.

Just had mine done by dealership. Looks like they used the following:

Castrol Edge Prof OE 0W-20 Full Synthetic 9 quarts
Land Rover filter LR011279

Once a year, I’ll take it to the dealership.
R-Dynamic SE P380 Santorini Black

What’s the dealer charge? If you can get out the door for <$200 it may not be worth the time to DIY.

I don't do it to save $s - I have the tools and time and it’s one of my hobbies - plus I suck it out from the top oil fill cap (just like the dealers) so no under car crawling around.

But, the Jacksonville, Florida dealer charges $375 and I live 70 miles south so that is also an inconvenient trip for me.

So, I made a deal w the Jax dealer and bought the oil and filter wholesale when I visited my daughters in Jacksonville.

BTW - the "OE" Castrol (ref Fluke above) does not meet the Velar STJLR.51.5122 spec - the "OE" Castrol is generic Land Rover for earlier Range Rovers, VWs and Mercedes – Velar STJLR.51.5122 spec requires the "E" Castrol 0W20 not "OE" – check the back labels on both versions vs trust the dealer.

If you google stjlr515122 there is a site that sells the kit for $104 but it is not castrol oil

Would a dealer just sell me the oil?

Yes--you can buy from any LR dealer. That is my dealer invoice above from Jacksonville Florida Land Rover , which includes part #s for both the oil and filter and states both Retail and wholesale prices at US $s.

Any advertised compatible oil is a scam unless it specifically states stjlr515122 on the back of the container.

Just make sure it is Castrol Edge Professional E 0W20 not OE.
