    As already said best prices around are TPS:

    One question though, 5w-40? Surely you be better off with the 5w-30, it meets longlife standards so essentially the better oil for your car....although ignore the longlife part better sticking to the once a year or 9K IMO

    You shouldn't need to change the gearbox oil, as far as I am aware the oil is good for the life of the car pretty much. Would probably be an idea to change it every 100,000k, if you really had to.

    How would a Joe Bloggs like myself go about getting parts from TPS? as above, they're trade dealers so wouldn't deal to a non-commercial customer.

    please help.

    do you know anyone who has a trade card at Halfords?

    you usually get around a tenner off with the oil and if you use halfords branded filters you'll get around 70% off the price with a trade card.

    you'll need a sump plug crush washer as well.

    I usually get the oil from Halfords and then the rest of the stuff i get from Audi / Honda as i like to use genuine parts as i usually get around 15% discount there.

    The other place which will do stuff for cheaper is GSF or Eurocarparts.

    as for the box oil you don't need to change that really, its a sealed unit but the oil can be changed, i'll be doing mine at 80k miles.

    Is yours a Quattro? if so then you'll need the haldex oil changing every 40k miles along with the filter.

    With ECP I'll only save about a tenner worth on parts instead using my garage supplied parts.

    Who is GSF?

    I don't know anyone who works in Halfords..

    though with TSP I reckon I'll save about Ł33 if I get the parts from there..

    i notice that your car is a Quattro in which case you'll need to change the Haldex oil every 40k miles.

    yeah that needs done, though not really at the top of my priority list atm!

    Does anyone have the haldex tool that they'd be willing to lend me with a deposit in exchange? I could just buy one but I don't really want it lying around to be probably used twice!

    where's best to get the oil and filter from?

    To answer my own Q, its Ł19.35 for the filter and Ł28.06 for the Oil at Hawco VW, Peterhead (Total = Ł47.41). I knew Ł28 was in there somewhere!

    Now just need a loan of a tool ..

    abit of a thread hi jack but
    5w 30 is a longlife oil correct?
    but how does this differ to the 5w40?

    What is actually the difference between the so called longlife and the normal oil?
    Does it have to be changed less or?
