      Care to back that statement up with some facts??

      I would argue that ester base stocks are the best that you can get. But don't take my word for it. Take it from someone that works with esters:...

      There's really no such thing as a crap base stock. Perhaps a crap finished product. Are the Group II's used in Schaeffer Supreme 7000 crap? Hardly.

      Who cares? Base stocks do not tell you anything about the performance of oil. It is more about the overall lubricant package and whether or not an oil meets the required specs.

      Who cares what Group an oil is as long as it meets the proper specs. And all Group III oils are not highly refined dino oils and the Group III Pennzoil Platinum/Ultra Platinum Gas to Liquid base...

      Doesn't look like my dealer has moved very many (if any) A3's either. IIRC, total number of A3's was about the same when they first arrived. Unless they sold a bunch and already got a bunch in again....

      If you don't replace the oil drain plug with a permanant solution, Audi oil change kits from some aftermarket vendors come with a new plug.

      The Audi USA A3/S3 brochure, available in the Audi Library iPad app, states that the AWD system is 90/10 in "normal driving" and up to 100% power can be sent to the front or to the rear.
    10. A3 Launch Events Nationwide in USA Planned for Tomorrow April 3

      Completely agree! It would have really set the A3 apart from the competition.

      Wow. My dealer here in Central NJ went from around 48 over the weekend to 65 as of today. :eek:
      They have a whopping 2 P+ and 1 Prestige model! Their launch event is Thursday night.

      I occasionally run 300V in my Forester turbo, but not sure I would consider any race oil as being "better" than an oil that meets ACEA A3/B3, VW502/505, Porsche A40, MB229.3/5, and BMW LL01. Yes,...

      Not sure when production changed, and new bottles are just starting to pop up, but I wouldn't worry about stocking up since the oils meet the same specs. There are still a few crazy out folks out...

      That GC UOA is great and it's hard to argue with the results, IMO. :thumbup: If you had an oil pressure gauge, and saw a problem with op, then one could say that you need a thicker oil.

      Of course, if you monkey around with anything like that you have a good chance of interfering with the Powertrain warranty. A 3.2 Q5 owner at audiworld was not able to get carbon build-up covered...

      There is no truth in what you've heard about Mobil1 0W-40. Check the Euro and UOA's forums at bobistheoilguy.com and you'll find a few uoa's there. As far as finding out if there are any...

      :D

      Yes, those are both good oils, except don't lump Mobil1 0W-30 in with Castrol 0W-30 since M1 0W-30 doesn't meet Euro specs. And just to throw another choice out there, Pennzoil Ultra 5W-40...

      How is Audi able to get an electric motor to power the rear wheels in the Shooting Brake Concept, but not in an A3? :confused: Is it a space issue or a weight issue?
