Oil change time for me. Totally standard engine (1992 R32). Used most days but not doing silly miles, and not driven super hard.

I'm thinking 10w40 or 10w50 but not sure which is more ideal for the use it gets, so recommendations are welcome

I just got an 1989 R32 GT-S coupe and I'm looking into getting it all set up to have fun in, looks like 10w-60 and 15w-50 is what's most popular going back over the last twelve years of posts. Any suggestions would also be greatly appreciated.

I would use good quality 5w-40, closest engine oil it has planed to run so
oil viscosity, lubrication and engine temps work as intended.
If oil temp goes up, add oil cooler not thicker oil.

I went for 5W-30 Castrol EDGE. My RB26 has got 230.000km on the clock and is mostly stock. No idea what was in it before. I figure a lighter oil is better for me as it makes life easier for my older Oil pump.

Another reason is that I rarely get the car up to top temperature. My test drives are very short and the climate that I live in is for the most part of the year colder. Once I do a engine out service I'll probably switch to a 40 or 50.

I went from Fuchs 5W-40 to 10W-50.

Oil pressure went up about 1BAR while being cold ..(16C)

What I've been using.

Always 10w50 and sometimes 20w50, i like it and the engine does too.

Will try 10w40 next time, as it gets a little thinner at higher temps.

Why did you stop using 5w40??

Would 20w50 would be fine for Dubai with some minor modifications, short trips, highway pulls?
