    I am going to be servicing my 1.8t soon including dropping the sump to clean the pick up pipe, I have always used castrol edge and have no complaints apart from price. I am now swaying towards using quantum, It is OEM after all and is at a great price, How do you all rate it? and what do you use?

    5/40 Fully Synth QX Meets VAG spec Not approved tho (eurocarparts) Cheap and got a free Bosch filter too! Ive noticed a hell of a lot of garages that used to have the drums of quantum now have QX and if German auto care use it (specialist) then it gets my vote :)

    This all day long.

    Every VAG specialist garage that I have been to swears by it and that is what the majority of us use on here- all with no issues.

    (I serviced my car the other month and used the search bar at the top right top to remind me what people were running ;-) )

    That's a good price.

    We should have a bargain watch alert system ono the forum so when there are offers on like this we can get notified.
