    Don't know if it's fully synthetic but you can get it from Esso petrol stations or CostCo if you or someone you know has a card.

    Re: what oil to use

    its fully synthetic and about 40 for 4 ltrs you will need 4.5 ltrs kwik fit do a mobil 1 oil change for about 40 but they use cheap filters best to get a audi one maybe get kf to change the oil with your filter and then you don't have to get rid of your old oil

    You can get an oil filter and sump plug from VAG Parts. If you feel inclined, it is fairly easy to change the oil yourself although, as Pete says, you'll need to dispose of the oil. I think 4l of Mobil 1 from Esso is 36.

    No Don't use that oil. Use Either Castrol SLX or Mobil 1.

    Cheers

    Oh dear. My local Audi dealer uses magnetex for their services.

    Good job I do my own.

    BTW, I use VW Synta Silver for mine.

    I know Motul oils are good for bike engines but not sure about cars.

    Mobil 1 for me
