Hi Matt

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic oil.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Synt S are good, cheaper alternatives.

Cheers

Tim

My vag com cable has gone so I'm saving up for a new one.
If it's just a simple code read and clear you're after I can do that for free, evenings and weekends if you travel to me

cheers tim never knew you could use 5-40 in a petrol... what will it be like? i will probably go for the mllers cfs that a good choice or would you say fuchs is better?

cheers matt
5w-40 is the most popular grade we sell for petrol engines. Many cars are recommended to use a 10w-40, 5w-40 just gives better cold start protection.

The Millers and Fuchs are as good as each other, there really is nothing in it.

You can get the oil changed by someone using a VW approved oil, but that oil won't be as good as the Fuchs or Millers.

Cheers

Tim
