    Pretty sure Opie does offers, so might be worth PMing/emailing them.

    Don't know if its the best but I stick with the manufacturers recommended which is currently Castrol Edge VW 504.00

    ...Any one seen that new advert with Ronaldo advertising Castrol Edge, LOL! the fanny probably uses the stuff on his hair as well as his beemer.

    There's a reason he is a footballer, not a radio/TV presenter. Sounds like he almost has a speech impediment! Talk about muffled and incoherent!

    yer halfords really saw me coming lol

    i swear they sell it in 4l containers knowing that most engines take 4.5/5l so therefore forcing you to buy another 1l/4l container, crafty devils

    I've just changed mine and used VW's Quantum. VW504 00 spec and came to £30 inc vat, although I had to buy 5 1 litre bottles.

    Sump takes 4.5 litres to fill too.

    Went into local VW garage today and they said that Quantum Platinum fully synth. has superseded Synta semi. £20 all in for 5l of Platinium, filter, and new sump plug. Can't complain at that.
