    Just had the S3 serviced at local dealer and as usual specified fully synthetic oil.
    Just looked at the invoice oil used as follows =
    VGS 555 02M2E UR SPECIAL G 5W-40.
    Never heard of such a thing so can anyone tell me what sort of junk this is ?

    Yebbut its 502 / 505 spec, and those, as has been noted elsewhere on this forum recently, older VAG specs. Current specs are 504 / 507.

    This is the stuff they used:
    https://www.autodoc.co.uk/vag/13562467

    Not the newest oil, I would demand 504 oil especially when they charge well over £100.00 for a simple oil change.
    You can get top quality mobil 1 at ATS for 80.00 but Audi charge 150.00 for oil that has not been used in years.

    I already advised what was in your car.
    If you type the spec into google then this oil comes up, its VW own oil, obviously not sure the actual make of oil as the barrels are labelled VW on the bottles. Maybe they are castrol or maybe quantum, who knows
    Type the oil code on your invoice and the link I sent if correct.
