please use the recommended oil on your new engine and be careful not to overfill it

Recommended is 0W20 but 5W20 is perfectly OK and is arguably better than 0W20 in a hot climate.
But 5W30 is a big NO in the F-Type V8 or V6 engine.

You can look in your manual maybe and see if there are other weights that are approved

Just finished an oil change in my 15 R. Oil weight plays a big role with clearances etc. I myself at first thought the oil is really thin for a performance car like this. But bearing clearances etc was set with this type oil weight in mind. So I usually don't mess with what the factory recommends.

Same here... i don't think the newer cars have as many owner's manual choices as the older ones...my 06 str has 6 approved weights i believe....never seen a newer manual though

Unfortunately, that won't stop the discussion about heavier viscosities.

For those who haven't read it, it replaces our beloved Castrol EDGE Pro with Castrol Edge Pro C5, except for the AJ126 in cold climates...
Castrol EDGE Professional E C5 0W-20, which has been jointly developed with Jaguar Land Rover, improves
fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions* while maintaining the reduction in metal to metal friction and wear.
The Castrol EDGE Professional range is the only engine oil recommended by Jaguar Land Rover.
* In tests versus Castrol Edge Professional E 0W-20

Personally, I'd opt for the non-C5.Temperature-wise Chicago is 5 degF colder on average in January than Stockholm.
