Tips for carrying out searches on the website


There are several ways to carry out a search on The most familiar method is to search by the make and type of vehicle. On our new website, however, there are many other ways of searching for the information you need. 


Whatever the type of search, a number of general tips apply:

1.    Be as specific as you can. For example, typing in "Ascona" will produce more relevant results than simply typing in "Asc", "320d" will produce more useful hits than typing in "BMW" and "Golf 1997 1.4" will be much more effective than simply typing "Golf".

2.    Another important point is to make sure you use the correct spelling. If you're unsure what the right spelling is, searching on Google will often put you right. For example, searching for "Ferari" won't give you the results you need, but "Ferrari" will.  

If you wish to search by vehicle make and type, please enter as much information as you can. Typing in the name of the model, plus the year of manufacture, will provide a more comprehensible result than searching by the vehicle make alone. 

Model series

Many makes of vehicle make use of an internal code to refer to their individual model series. In the case of BMW, for example, the number E39 stands for the BMW 5-series models produced from 1995 up to and including 2003. On our old website, it wasn't possible to search using codes, such as E39, but on our new website, that is now possible. In many cases, agricultural machines are also referred to using a model code. A typical example is the John Deere 8850, which is part of the 50-series, which not everybody knows. On our new website, it's simply a case of typing in 8850 - there's no need to search for "John Deere".

Other options

You can enter various search terms in the grey search bar, which is located in the top right-hand corner of the website. 

  1. Searching by part number
  2. Searching by product name
  3. Searching by viscosity, such as 5W-40 
  4. Searching by specification, such as ACEA C3
  5. Looking for a product, but don't know what it's called? Simply entering a generic product type, such as "sewing machine", "lawn mower" or "saw" will often produce highly specific results.
  6. You can also search by the type of application, such as: "H1", "Agri" or "industry"
