    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)
