    You need 5w/30 but it must conform to VW 504 00/507 00. Make sure it says this on the bottle.

    This is the stuff that I use and is what certain Audi garages use but you could always get the Shell equlivent etc but must have the above code on the bottle. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165581

    Pity it gets the model wrong when I type in my reg no...

    AUDI (VAG)
    A4 Cabriolet S4 4.2 (250kW QG1 Variable Service)
    2003 -


    No I don't have a 2003- S4 Cabriolet, I have a 2006 RS4 Avant!

    It even has this footnote:
    4X4 models using the Haldex clutch system; only use VW specified oil

    A3 and TT have Haldex, but A4, A5, A6, A8 have Torsen - so it's a pointless footnote.

    I just tried that link where you put your reg in and it says mine's a Multitronic! It's a Manual......

    At least it got the model right unlike Petrol Dave's! Mind you, how rude thinking that you had an S4 Dave!

    The silly thing is I DO use Castrol Edge 5w/30!

    But the link also recommends it for my wife's Skoda Fabia 1.2 which is on fixed annual/10K servicing, and which it's over spec'd.

    Any oil that meets the VW504.00 is ideal, they generally tend to be 5w-30.

    All these are VW504.00 approved http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-749-vw-50400-oil.aspx

    Cheers
