Quantum Longlife 3 is the engine oil TPS will sell for pretty much every VW application - spec: 507.00
Not too expensive either - Audi dealers parts depts are selling it on eBay for about £25 delivered for 5 litres.

Hi all. I have a 2011 1.8tfsi in which the oil light has just come on this morning. I've had a quick read but not got a definitive answer to what oil I should be using to top up?

Thanks..rav.

Not really , it's all made to the spec , approved or not , non approved can be found more cheaply but best value approved is Quantum Longlife III .

Does anyone have any feedback on this ester based oil? I’m due my annual service and getting an ester based oil is really hard in New Zealand!

Interesting read but I have a question, my S3 (BHZ) is on 82k, it has a slight tapping sound once the engine is hot and at idle, seem to go once the revs pick up, I'm thinking due to the mileage maybe a slightly thinker oil is required and am considering a 5w40 instead of the current 5w30, however there is no 5w40 with the required 504.00 spec, what alternative can folk recommend?

Thanks,
Rog.

504.00 is a 5w30 oil so you won’t find this in a 5w40.

The current preference is Millers Nanodrive CFS NT 5w40. It’s a triple ester stock. This is available from Halfords or Opie Oils. Failing that, any of the ester based products above would be fine.

Thanks for that, very much appreciated, opie is local to me so I'll give them a bell.

Just looking at doing an interim oil change on my (newish to me) A3 2.0tdi (cffb engine) having owned 2 PD engined vw/audi (still have the b6) i've always put the Quantum longlife 3 in the a4, but looking at the last service on the A3 the garage receipt says 0w30 oil used.
Opie oil options are all 5w30, i take it the 0w30 isn't wrong as such?
It's on the longlife intervals, but i'm a bit ocd with changing the oil (don't like these longlife intervals!) so will be doing it soon and then again when the service pops up on the screen no doubt.

Judging by this thread the Longlife 3 oil is still fine to use on the newer CR engines with dpf? or is there anything else i need to consider?
Anyone used AVS carparts (vwspares) site for filters? they seem to have decent prices on genuine filters. Although not used them myself yet.

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

I'll go with the Quantum longlife 3 then, whats in there now going by the receipt doesn't state the 507.00 although it does have - C3/229.51 which seems to tally up with the MB spec that is on the 507.00 so hopefully it's fine.
Just wondered why the garage used that & on a previous service done there it was a 5w30?.. oh well.
I'll carry on with my usual then.. it's nice that the 2 audis i have can use the same oil anyway

Hi everybody, What do you think about the Liqui Molly Molygen? I know it is doesn't have the vw specfication but it seems like a good oil
