    I'm using Castrol Magnetec 10/40 in my A4 1997 1.8t ..Are there many out there using this Oil..has anyone any comment on what Oil best to use...What's wrong with using stuff from Audi they should know what's best surely..I know you can pay silly money for Fully Synthetic but they say it don't last long..any comments appreciated..

    I use 10/40 fully synthetic and change it every 4k mile (more often if the car is getting spanked round a race track). Oil is the blood of your engine, make it count

    I use the same grade, and buy whatever is priced best at the time, as long as its a full synth and covers VW 505 spec then its all good. I also use a K&N oil filter as its about twice the size of a normal one, as the oil capacity on the A4 is shockingly low

    Oil filter is always a motorfactor item and the oil is usuall Comma (although I think it's tecnically a hyrdacracked mineral oil as opposed to a proper polyalfolfin ESTA synthetic oil)
