    Depends on the age of the car or if it is on longlife service intervals (i.e 20k). If so, Audi is the ideal place to go for their longlife oil. I personally came off that level of servicing at 60k and now use Valvoline Maxlife (semi-synthetic) 10w 40 with no complaints...Change it every 6k. Go for the well known brands such as you mentioned above synthetic or semi-synthetic 5w-30 is ok

    Hope that helps mate... :thumbsup:
