    Chris, fair point, but I thought you needed to be 'in the trade' to buy from TPS and that all of their prices were +VAT?

    There are 462 Halfords and 61 TPS centres, so in my case my nearest TPS is a 64 mile round trip, whereas my local Halfords is just 8 miles in total, so in that respect surely a false economy for most?

    I'd question the 'genuine VAG' bit as any oil that meets the standard 507.00 standard is suitable with no issues.

    I've used this ebay selley twice "Diesel Trader" Link:- 2x5 litre QUANTUM LONGLIFE 3 III 5W-30 Oil CASTROL EDGE 10 LTR QUANTUM LOW ASH | eBay

    1st time was £60 delivered for 10L in 2011, 2nd time was £61 in 2012... currently there are other ebay sellers cheaper than him...

    I think this is the cheapest as delivery is £5 and then an extra £1.50 for each additional item

    QUANTUM LONGLIFE 3 FULLY SYNTHETIC 5W-30 | eBay

    5l = £6.40 per liter
    10l = £6.05 per liter
    15l = £5.93 per liter
    20l = £5.87 per liter

    So I'll be buying 20 liters which should be enough for 2 oil changes :O)

    Thanks to all!

    I only said genuine VAG oil as it is what VW/Audi use for their services.

    And just because it is suitable for a VAG vehicle doesn't make it the same. Most 'fully synthetic' oil isn't actually fully synthetic. Read about Royal Purple oil, very expensive stuff but its true fully synthetic.

    VW/Audi IMO will use any oil that meets the specs that costs them the least. As an example Pirelli can be found to state that they specifically developed tyres for Jaguar/Porsche etc however only a small percentage of the drivers actually use the designated tyre finding that others offer better driving characteristics.

    As to Royal Purple am fully aware of it's benefits as ran my XK8 on it for a number of years...partly due to me buying at cost (£5 per quart) for evaluation purposes for the Enthusiasts Club back in 2008. Am reasonably sure that they don't do an oil that meets VAG 507 though?

    ^^^^ Incidentally how many liters do you need for a chane in a 07 3.0TDI Quattro, am guessing 10l is suffice?

    8.xL IIRC... with 10L you'll have a little spare, which is handy IMO ... I've only once or twice needed to top up oil after having had some work done...

    Now if only we could find tiptronic transmission fluid that wasn't priced in kidneys-per-litre, I'd be set!
