best oil?

Right guys....iv done all the servicing bar oil and oil filter (sometimes skint tells you to wait) and now that im going to do it im a bit confused as to which is the better oil....Castrol magnatec or Castrol Edge. Edge claims a stronger film strength and a few other things....While Magnatec claims its magnetic particle stick to engine when cold malarky. So which is the best for a k11 micra would you say?. I know mobil one is probably better than both but id expect that to be considerably dearer. Just want your opinions. Thanks. Also both oils claim state 6 months per change. That sounds a bit tight I always changed once per year with my other cars?
 
My fitter uses quadrant which is vee dub oil apparently, seems fine. Not sure of the viscosity 10/40 I think, but I change my oil every 5k, always have and that seems to work fine.
Magnatec ....erm.... over rated I believe and stupidly expensive, and waterier than piddle
 
Thinking ill go with the edge rather than magnatec. From what I read around the web it seems to be better. Though please correct me if im wrong.

I run Vauxhall own brand 10w/40 semi synth.

Nice and cheap and goes in the road cars as well, 20ltrs for just over £50 delivered - [HASHTAG]#ideal[/HASHTAG]

Rally car oil does get changed after each event though.
 
Haaaaa, my mate owns a chip shop and i use his used oil,.tell ya what, no holds barred on performance, car goes like a rocket!!! But only problem is you can smell me coming, fish and chip ship on wheels but it lubricates the turbo well!!

Oh and good for the environment as im using used oils aka regenerating ....

If anyone wants 5 ltrs let us know ....
