Sorry for the delay, it looks like your email was missed for some reason.
I very much doubt that the Magnatec A1 you used will cause
an issue, my only concern is that as the handbook mentions the ACEA C2 and C3
spec, it could be that your car has a sensitive emissions system. It's rare
that a petrol engine requires an ACEA C spec oil (they are mainly for modern
diesels), but there are a few petrol engines that have sensitive catalytic
converters and need a C spec oil.
Any of the 5w-30 oils via that link should be absolutely
fine. Unfortunately, the 1.2 Qashqai is not on our databases yet, so I can't
check on definite requirements of the engine, so can't be 100% sure, but I'm
almost 100% sure those oils would be suitable.

Ta, as always a font of knowledge! 5w40 can be used, although I think 5w30 is preferred due to its ability to support a wider range of temperatures, esp colder temps.
