    Oil

    what oil u fellas using ???

    just topped up with some Castrol SLX 2 synthetic (0/w30?)as my engine was bone dry
    not a fecking drop in it

    thinking it will need more than the 1 litre i whacked in last nite

    this is pretty expensive oil the synthetic stuff (app.esp for VAG engines with AVS service intervals)
    40 quid for 3.5 litres

    Mobil 1,
    It is expensive but not as much as an engine rebuild!

    I use Mobil 1 also.

    Its cheaper than Castol SLX at my local halfords and its VW503.01 approved for my AVS Servicing!

    I didn't think it was that expensive?

    I'm using fully synthetic VAG Synta Gold - about 23 for 5 litres from GSF. It gets changed every 5000 miles as I'm not following the variable service routine as I don't agree with it.

    I've been advised that you only need the tip-top Castrol stuff if you are following variable servicing. If not, any quality synthetic will do.
