is this the correct oil to use in my 2001 zaf 1.6 16v

http://www.autovaux.co.uk/LoadPortal.aspx?cnum=72&pnum=AS93165216&tabid=5&vnum=129

as it on a vauxhall parts website, im guessing this is what the vauxhall dealers use, or should i use something better like castrol.

Also is 10w40 ok for the engine with 108k miles or whould i use something thicker?

1.6 needs 3.5 litres of oil including filter..10w 40 vaux oil is well suitable...
i used vaux 5w30 but mine is a turbo..
