    Hi guys.

    I have a 1.8t 190 avant with bex engine running standard and was just wondering what oil is generally used by forum users with this particular engine.

    Thanks for your time

    5W30 Fully Synthetic.

    I learned that here. I have no idea of the reasons behind it. But apparently it's important to never ever let your 1.8T even see some semi-synthetic through a shop window. It will die.

    I'm just about to do a service and then was wondering which oil to use on my 190 with 140k on the clock.

    I don't drive it hard well not very often anyway. Kids are always in the car :-(

    if you drive the car normally then stick with the manufacturer reccomended spec which is 5w30 fully synthetic
    what brand is really upto yourself i use the fuch titan personally and its been superb

    if you drive hard or use the car for any type of track event then go to 5w40 this raises the upper limit on the oil temperature
    so when cycling from hot and cold the oil will not break down as quickly
