    Where can I buy oil for my S3?

    Hello,

    I need to top up my oil. I am on Audi flexible service intervals and the manual says I need VW 503 01 oil.

    I had a look in Halfords but no luck.

    Where can I buy the right oil for my car?

    Cheers

    I got some from a local motor factors. Couldnt find the Castrol SLX longlife stuff anywhere so ended up getting the mobil 1 its still VW 503 01 though.

    Halfords, Motor World, Charlie Browns all never stocked either. Look in your yellow pages for a motor factors like i did.

    Hi Rich,

    you say don't use SLX II, why is this so bad, I know SLX is slightly thicker and meant for the higher performance Audi's but surely it can do any harm, can it?

    Thought it was supposed to be a higer spec oil?

    Nothing wrong with SLX II as a oil. I was just saying that you can't use it with variable servicing on a S3/TT (210/225) as its not 503.01 spec.

    Cheers
