    Ultimate/Final 8P Oil Thread

    VW 507.00 spec is a must on CR engines with DPF. I'm using Castrol Edge 5W30 personally.

    DPF: Reading ash loading level @140,000 mi

    Means you/your mechanic should do DPF ash reading - quite an easy thing to do with VCDS/OBDEleven. I think these filters hold up to 70g of ash (can be checked with the same diagnostic tool).

    2.0 TDI BKD - Blue smoke on startup with clicking sound

    No problem mate! If you manage to find out what is causing this, post here as it might help someone in the future (and I am very curious as this was the very reason I sold the car!) :grinning:

    2.0 TDI BKD - Blue smoke on startup with clicking sound

    Unfortunately I have never found out what used to cause these issues on my car. I sold the car about 10 days after making this thread. :(

    Facelift 1.6 TDI DMF failure - anyone else? Need advice.

    I went over their heads and contacted Audi Deutschland directly from my corporate Daimler email. They caved in because they saw the Daimler thing and they don't want the competition to hear things. :D Anyway, a quick update in case anyone ever encounters similar problem. I have noticed that I...

    Facelift 1.6 TDI DMF failure - anyone else? Need advice.

    So about a month ago, my 85kW 1.6 TDI with 29k miles started producing horrible knocking noises until clutch is pressed. Once you press the clutch, the sound would go away. Dealership diagnosed it as a failing DMF, they replaced DMF and I was happy all until today... the horrible noise is back...

    2019 - xenon headlights

    I'm paying ADAC about 40 Euro per year plus Audi Assist and I think that's more than enough. When Audi Assist terminates, ADAC is the way to go for me for cases like this.

    2019 - xenon headlights
