    Oil problem

    I've just put Castrol SLX longlife II in my 1.8TQ as recommended buy the dealer but I'm worried they've told me the wrong information can anybody confirm this is ok?

    This is OK in 1.8T's and 1.8T Quattro's but NOT on S3's.

    Local dealer has always used Longlife II on my 1.8T Quattro and has been 100% OK

    what confused me was in the manual it says

    503 00 - Petrol engines
    503 01 - Turbo petrol engines*

    *must use this for S3, TT & RS4

    As we have turbos I thought we had to use 503 01

    Is there an issue with mixing the oil for instance say the dealer has been using something else and I start topping it up with longlife?
