And the correct oil is..........
Castrol SLX Longlife III (or Castrol SLX Longlife 3 for search engines!) for my std 2007 A4 2.0 TDI (170PS) S-Line Special Edit.. - according to the Audi stealer.
- I have now done circ' 5k miles & needed to top up the oil - does anyone know where one can buy this oil? - The stealer (which isn't too local wants ~£13 + VAT a litre).
I tried Halfords, local shops & Garages (BP - Castrol under another name!). Allmost all insist that it doesn't exist - even when I poked the empty(ish) bottle under their noses!
I was told the Castrol edge is the replacement for Castrol SLX Longlife II - (Cos it says so on the edge bottle and Castrol SLX Longlife III doesn't exist remember!!!!). But the stealer keeps saying it needs to be the Castrol SLX Longlife III.
With the oil consumpton typical with the 2.0 TDI (170 PS) engine we need to find a cheep (right-price) for this stuff.
Any ideas? - Even if the edge is suitable (that is also 504.00 and 507.00 compliant in the 5W-30 like the SLX Longlife III) - but that's even more expensive ~£17 from the local shops & BP garage!
I really don't want to re-morgage the house to top my oil up!
