    went into audi the day and asked for 5 litres of engine oil for my a4 diesel and the guy gave me some quantum part synthetic oil 10w to 40 just wondering is this the right stuff for my car 2002 a4 1.9 tdi quattro last time i bought oil for my 130 engine is was recommend for the pd range and dosent say on this one that it is just wondering if any one can point me in the right direction
     
  2. Everytime i get my serviceables from TPS i get givin quantum platinum 5w40 full synthetic and at £19 for 5 litres it is very well priced

    If it was my car I'd put the 507 00 Quantum 5W 30 LongLife III in.

    if you really want to treat your car get your money back and buy some castrol edge 5w40 turbo diesel with FST especially designed for the vw audi pd engine . the pd is not the quietest of engines but this oil reduces the noise levels a tad

    Just looking around for oil for my avf engined a4, ecp has this castrol edge fo £34 after discount code, but its only 4 litres, from what I can see in my a4 booklet it takes 4.2 litres?...
    That would start getting expensive if needing to buy a 1 litre too.

    I also came across Quantum Longlife III 5W30 Fully Synthetic Oil 5L - AZGB115QLB00501

    Depending on delivery costs that seems ok, my local vw dealer quoted me £56 for longlife & £36 for platinum.

    I called a local tps and they won't sell to public!!.... Damn

    Just a quick note, there is strictly speaking no such thing as "semi-synthetic" oil. It's standard mineral oil with additives. Fully synthetic is always the best way to go.
