    Hi

    I'm after some Castrol SLX Longlife III for my A3

    Any ideas, looked on the web, there is nowhere obvious.

    Its on about 1/2 on the dipstick at the moment, so need some pretty rapid!!!

    I presume Audi would nail your hat on with the price???

    Please advise

    Regards

    Lee

    I think the dealer charges about £10 for a 1 litre top up bottle. You can buy 4 litres from costco for about £23.

    Castrol SLX Longlife III has been superseded by Castrol Edge. I bought some a while ago at my local Halfords.

    Which Costco has it? I look but never see any VW oil at costco?

    Best price I found for longlife 506.01 or 507.00 oil was my local Shell petrol station. Shell Helix do a special 507.00 oil and its "just" 13.99 a litre.

    Bought my last litre of Longlife 3, unopened, from eBay with a boot pouch for just 6.52 delivered......

    The 4 litres of Castrol Edge 5w-30 oil I bought at Halfords cost £42.99 or £10.75 per litre.
