    Would you recommend Castrol Edge 5w30 over the Mobil1 0w40 oil ?

    5w30 is the recommended viscosity for your engine afaik, not 0w40, so certainly the change to even this type would be better, as for the brand, well I always have used castrol for my audi's, even if its rips ur butt for cost, but at least then if you ever have claim issues with audi, you can clearly state you've always used castrol slx/edge :)
