    New Oils

    Going to get the Haldex dif oil changed and reading around people recommend the gearbox and dif oil aswell.

    My question is, how much of each oil will I need and what type do I need.

    Also do opieoils sell all the oils I will need?

    haldex oil and filter from audi - around £20 all in

    opie oils will recommend Silkolene SYN5 GL4/5 oil, around £7 a litre, you will need 5 or 6 to do gearbox and diff. you can use the same oil for both as it's a GL4/5 oil

    for the haldex get it from vw/audi as it comes in a tube ( like silicon does) just the right amount in the tube.

    never done the gearbox but might do soon.

    did the engine oil on mine the other day found 4.5 lts to be the perfect ammount and halfords had mobil 1 5lts on special for 36 so still got a little left for top ups.

    No 4.5lts is the perfect ammount. sits just shy of the top level on the dipstick.
