      I've read that in harsh climates where temperatures can be quite drastic that it can be better to change oil more frequently. I certainly know that synthetic is better with very cold temperatures.

      I just typically prefer a reasonable explanation as to why vs. "everybody else is doing it"

      In this case, I don't see a lot of evidence that supports...

      I never said synthetic causes more engine wear, I said it CAN cause more engine wear if you change oil frequently. I didn't say how frequently :D I don't plan on coughing up all the links either. ...

      10K is very safe. I've read quite a bit on oil myself and as long as it's synthetic it's not as big a deal. If it isn't, then you have to worry about all the different additives the manufacturer...

      I have a Passat TDI and had a Jetta TDI. I originally planned on keeping the Jetta TDI for at least 10 years. But since I can't predict whether VW would still cover the $8k HPFP failure years down...

      The Golf Wagon uses the same engine and that's actually what I was referring to when I said it's been in Europe for a bit. You'll just have to wait for it to be released in the next few months. ...

      It looks like the DSG version of the TDI and the Hybrid are very comparable. The only difference I really see is in the non-highway mileage and the hybrid seems to have better FE at a cold start. ...

      I guess that's my point. We don't know if the quality and build is even better just from a photo.

      That's exactly what I've come to understand as well. Hence my mention that our standard wheel can not accommodate paddle shifters. That's why I dropped the idea. Too expensive to buy that wheel. ...

      That's odd. You drove a TDI with paddle shifters? As far as I know that was never an option. Was this a 2010 cup edition by chance? I wonder if those got paddle shifters.
