    Get SLX II, thats what I have used the whole time I have had my car.

    Which has been from 18k miles to 62k miles and never had any problems.

    Is fully synthetic.

    Is recommended by Audi/VW. On the pack is for all the 1.8T engines like TT, S3 etc. and other high performance models. I have a mate which gets me it for much cheapness from his work. He says they just put it in the Golf turbo's and the R32's etc. Also has the recommended vw code that is in the service/owners manual.

    Is quite expensive I think though.

    Hope this helps mate.
