    S3 Engine Oil

    Hi everyone,

    I went to Alton Towers with the girlfriend the other week, took the S3, and just after leaving wales the engine oil level warning light came on which was weird as i checked it not long before going. So we stopped in Tewksbury to get some at a layby services and couldnt find one with the 503.01 specification (they only had one type which was mobil), so drove a little further using the RNS as guidance to a nearby shell garage where i got some Shell Helix Ultra.

    Just wondering what oil you guys use?
