    S3 Oil?

    Hey guys - I am due a service on my 2010 S3. Currently it is on the Audi Variable Service (upto 2 yrs) but I am planning to switch to the fixed (for ease).

    Putting the VW spec aside, can anybody tell me what the grade of oil is required? 5w30?

    Thanks in advance.

    5w30 fully synthetic is what most use.

    Usually, but just work by the rule of thumb of using the best oil you can. High performance car needs the best!
