    So as the title says? Its due a change after 6000m. This is my first oil change so looking for some recommendations on what oil to use. Car has 132,000 miles. No mods, standard. Dont really drive it hard, just the odd occasion. I reckon i will put about 10-12k a year on the car.

    1999 S4 biturbo



    Any advice welcome.

    Thanks

    You want a good quality 5w40 fully synthetic oil. Choice and brand etc up to personal preference. You wont go wrong with Quantum Platinum from a VW/Audi dealer though.
