    Audi or VW I guess, its like 12, better of spending the extra 4 or so it costs for geniune G12 than trying to get it from somewhere like ebay where its probably a mix of cat piss and shampoo.

    Its only about 6 a bottle from Audi, depending on how much you lost depends on if you need one or two bottles. I only needed one when I change the thermomstat.

    6 isn't bad.
