    i have just topped up with 5/40w as im pretty sure its a pd, how do i know if it is a pd or not? just by the age of the car?

    It was the orange check light that came on, wasnt sure if it was a STOP now or a better do it as soon as u get home kinda light so i took the stop now approach and got the girlfriend to run me to a few petrol stations until i found some 5/40W.

    Thanks DIPS A4

    Yep! Your 130 is a PD Engine only... and should only be run on VAG PD oil so I'm told....
