    hi all i got some parts off tps what inc 5l of oil for my sig car below =

    Azgb 115 qlb 00 501 A4E3 Longlife III 5w oil for £57.89p ( from stoke on trent AUDI to ! )

    but then i got some for topping up from audi at halesowen code

    Uzgb 115 qlb 00 501 LF06 5l Longlife III 5w ( looks the same but different start & end code ).
    only £27.18p !!!

    will the halesowen oil be ok for topping up ?, as the garage who did the oil change said my engine takes 5.25l so i might need to top up. so i got this oil & now i am worried in case the code means it might be different oil some how.... .

    p,s i have got a fuel filter too code u057 127 435 d ad02, is it easy to swap over ? as i have my car booked in at a garage what does all the work on my old cars & they have been great so far.
    but i have heard a few folks say on forums about the ccar not starting or the pump locking up & costing loads to get right.

    all

    plus i code some covers too for the battery, air con pipes, stuttle cover etc.

    i will scan the invoice in ASAP & stick it up on here with some photos on my engine bay asap.

    Hi sorry to say by the looks of it you have been ripped off by TPS? I get the same oil for 1.8t from my local SEAT Garage and only pay the £27.00 per 5 ltr's here is a link to TPS look on the right hand side about have way down on page four and you can see the part number forget the A & U and the last four just look up the part number ZGB 115 QLB 00 501 Long Life III Engine Oil 5 5W- 30 £27.50 £5.50. The £5.50 is the trade price per ltr.


    http://www.thetradepartsspecialists.co.uk/pdf/TPS Parts News Issue 2 July and August.pdf

    quantum_oils with this click on long life then click 5W-30 long life III


    google zgb 115 qlb 00 501 brings up loads on this oil its all the same acoss the VW AUDI SEAT SKODA Companys.

    As far as I know Castrol Oils make all the Quantum Products?
