6L of Shell Helix Ultra Professional AJ-L 0W-30 - its £23 at eurocarparts with voucher code
Personally I wouldn't use an ACEA C3 with no JLR approval. Given the DPF issues so often discussed the low ash rating might be important. On the other hand it could all be smoke and mirrors, or any way at least smoke.

What year is your Discovery?

The oil shouldmeet the JLR 5007 spec and be 0w-30. These are suitable for JLR 5007 https://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-3570-jagua ... e-oil.aspx

Any 0w-30 or 5w-30 should be fine, but change every 5000 miles if possible, do not wait till the car tells you it needs changing!
I change my oil twice a year spring and autumn.
Stick to 0w-30 if you can afford the inflated prices!

Not just any 5w-30 / 0w30. It has to have the JLR 5007 certification. I definitely wouldn't be putting in some of the cheaper brands of 5w30. Best thing to do is listen to the oilman above. They are a very good website (Opie-Oils) Who I've ordered from many times in the past. They know their stuff.
