    Oil additives

    Just wondering if any are actually any good

    Has any one got an opinion or experience of using them and which would be the best for an 03 s4 v8

    Not sure about modern additives as oil has moved along since I read a related article, it suggested that many of the components of additives could be removed by your oil filter.

    I think you'd probably be better saving your money and spending it on regular oil changes

    good quality modern oils dont need additives . i use audis own quantum longlife 111 its good for 19000 mile oil changes but it wont see anything like that milage in my car i will change it about every 8 to 9000 . its what audi use when they service your car and if they have the confidence to leave it for 19000 miles considering they put a warrenty on new cars then its plenty good enough for my 8 to 9000 miles and the best bit is its only 31.00 for 5 litres . so i suggest you forget additives and buy genuine audi oil filters with the money you save

    One of the best is Activ8
