The reccomended oil for these is Total Quartz 9000 5w-40 fully synthetic, but its reasonable at £16.50+VAT from GSF. The OE oil filters are Purflux - the HDi engines have a specific filter but they're only £3.45+VAT.

www.gsfcarparts.com - I'm not affiliated with them, other than as a satisfied customer but most of their stuff is supplied direct from the OE manufacturers at a fraction of the dealership prices.

Checking in my C5 handbook, for the 2.0 HDI engine, if the car has no particle filter, you could also use Quartz Diesel 7000 10W-40.
