    Every 10k miles or more often if you got a remap etc.

    Surely that's not the case with 'longlife' service intervals?

    Is it ????????

    You're right...Fixed service intervals is 10k. On longlife I've been getting about 18k.

    5w 30, VW 504 00 / 507 00 fully synthetic.

    And I wouldn't entertain longlife servicing.

    As said, longlife servicing is bu11sh1t... every 8-10,000 where 10,000 is absolute max you should go to. If you do less than that then once per year.

    Quantum Longlife III is the best oil to use.
