    Which Oil?

    Sorry for such a newb post, as im sure its been asked a million and one times, but after searching I couldnt decipher what oil was best to go for for a 1.8 SE A3.

    0-5 W30 fully synthetic, but what difference is there if i buy 0W30, or 5W30?

    Is there an oil which is 'better than the rest', so to speak?

    And whilst im on the topic, where would be best to get an oil filter for the same car? I was going to try Audi, or GSF?

    Many thanks.

    Nick

    GO for 5W-30 fully symthetic either castrol Edge or Mobil ESP formula.

    Halfords will give you a choice of oil filters.
