    As far as I understand it, Castrol Edge is the equivalent of what Audi themselves put in these days (branded under the name of Quantum), so it can't be too bad... and price is usually pretty good if you don't buy it from the stealers.

    Quantum 5w40 fully synthetic... If you have a PD engine i would stop using castrol magnatec as it's not good for the cams in these...

    Eurocarparts often have a 20% discount offer code which includes oil. I used Shell Helix in my last car which met the correct vw specs. Current code is ALL20

    Cheers all, I have used the 5 30 edge. Engine seems to be a little noisy. Will keep an eye on it.
