    Be a good buy for a fleet, but way OTT for an individual owner.
    Mine went through oil like Gazza does Red Bull, but it still didn't come anywhere near 60 litres!

    Yes, but that suggests this oil is deficient in some way.
    It isn't, it meets the appropriate specification.
    So you wouldn't gain anything by spending more.

    Yes I would..... peace of mind! Maybe I am just old fashioned... But in terms of oil and tires... only reputable brands with a long history of business.

    There are very good tires from not so well known tires like there is oil that meets Audi requirements but I personally prefer oil from Mobil, Castrol, Shell, etc than a white brand that meets specs...

    Maybe this is somethinf that comes from my years of 2 stroke go karting where a different oil made wuite a difference... you should see the piston and cilinders... and all came from an homologated list... but there where lots of differences between them...

    I am pretty sure that if the oil meets Audi specs it will be OK but it is a personal opinion/choice... that is all.

    Pedro, have you actually looked at the ebay advert being discussed?
    It's Castrol oil.

    In general terms I agree with you. I always prefer to purchase brands that I know and trust.

    "There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey."
    - John Ruskin

    In this particular case it seems that the oil in question is Castrol, so assuming it's genuine, there should be no problem.
