    Basically any oil that meets VW specification VW507 00. Quite a number do but check on the container. There is no need to use any different oil in winter than in the summer.

    Personally I use Castrol Edge 5w-30 which I tend to buy in a 4 litre can from Halfords. Shell Helix Ultra VX 5w-30 is another one which meets the spec.

    Apparently Motul is the best money can buy.

    I got a shock when my oil warning light came on going up the A1. Guess I'm not used to diesels and their oil consumption! I was glad of the 1L can from Audi in the boot but a little concerned after the whole experience.

    How much oil should/do they get through?

    Whenever I wash the car, usually now about once every two weeks.
