    The magnated supposedly has an additive iin it that helps it get upto temperature quicker. The GTX is just a normal semi synthetic oil.

    IMO, I'd go for the GTX as i think the additives in oils are a fad. They don't put them in from the factory so (In my mind) they are not needed.

    Thinking of stocking up on some why its cheap. Got 2 cars to do soon!
