      0W30 GC is superior oil.
      I switched to M1 bcs now living on 6,035ft, so flash point is lower, and M1 has 15c higher flash point then GC.
      But love GC!!!

      This is what I did on CC.
      I did not want to go with big break upgrade (312mm is ok by my opinion).
      I went with EBC slotted rotors, and EBC red stuff pads.
      Brakes feel much better then on some...

      I used GC in 1.8T and now in CC and Tiguan.

      2.5 is much easier on oil then 2.0T. However, castol 0W30 (GC) and 0W40 (BC, you can find it in Advance Auto parts) are far more superior then 5W40.
      Also, Pennzoil Ultra 5W40 (Amazon) or M1 0W40 are...

      Well depends what 5W30 oil.
      If it is regular 5W30 oil that goes in Chevrolet or Toyota, then it is not going to work.
      If it is 5W30 that meets VW 502.00 standard, then you are OK.
      Personally, I...
