    Hi Guys,
    Sorry to be a pain, but after reading many articles and getting thoroughly confused all I would like to know is what oil do I have to put into my Audi A6 2.0 TDI SE Registered Dec 2004 On the 2 year service deal. If I am reading the handbook correctly it says 506 01 / 507 00 But cant see this anywhere in Halfords, is it an Audi Job only?
    Many Thanks

    Either will do. Lots around in various motor factors or try e.bay. oil is 0w30 for the 506.01 or 5w30 for the 507.
