      Well I can let you all know that there is another oil that most people may have heard of but didn't know it was available for european cars.

      Check out amsoil.com and search your car on the right side of the page under product lookup guide.

      Once you go through everything it will tell you what oil you need as well as how much you need, and filters you need too.

      Amsoil also has a great selection of fuel additives for better performance and fuel filter cleaning as well as an octane boost for the track days.

      Any questions, let me know.

      they never come out second in any of there comparisons. fuel addatives only enrich the seller if you're useing good gasoline.

      2003 Audi A3 1.8t
      06-15-2011 12:40 PM #110
      Hi guys, I have a audi A3 1.8t aum engine from 2003 with 53k. kms
      Which oil grade do you recomend, I live in Costa Rica, our wheater is humid all year round, and never goes under 15 celcius (59 Fahrenheit) but it get warm up to 40 celcius (104 fahrenheit).

      I´ve been using Castrol Sythec 5w40, and the car feels good, but every 3000 kms I need to pour a new Qt of oil, which in Costa Rica cost arount $25 each.

      So everytime I change my oil, it´s about a $135 deal ( 5 quarts because i carry always an extra one, just in case, and K&N oil filter $15)

      Am I using the correct oil? do you guys recommed a diferent grade? brand?

      Suggestions?

      thanks

      I suggest trying out a few other "approved" oils to see if one does not get consumed as readily as the Syntec 5W-40.

      Suggestions include:

      Castrol Syntec 0W-30 (A.K.A. German Castrol)
      Mobil 1 0W-40
      Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5W-40

      Any name brand "synthetic" 10w-30 that has API SN, SM or SL should work well. Pennzoil Platinum would be ideal. Forget the K&N for the cheapest filter you can find, Purolator or NAPA or whatever. Filters from any year Audi or VW that is larger sized, like a Cricket bat.

      The Mobil 1 High Miles line is likely to best the best product ANYWHERE, inc Euro oils.

      It is formulated thicker, with higher SL additive levels, unlike the newer oils with low SAPS, esp VW 504/507.

      Take it elsewhere.
      A. This thread is titled "For the FAQ: VW/Audi 502.00 and 505.01 Approved Oils"
      B. As has been proven again and again in every thread in which you post: nobody cares what you have to say.

      lol, wait.

      Nevermind.

      Thanks for a good laugh.

      YOU seem to care what I post, duh.

      It's just that you don't UNDERSTAND what I post.

      Since you know so much about the subject, why don't you do something useful and compare and contrast the Mobil 1 HM with VW 502 oil as well as VW 504.

      Yawn.



      Anyway, the Kool-Aid drinkers of VW 502 seem to know the LEAST about it and express that is some psychotic dreamland where ONLY VW 502 oils work. Well, real world is that they DON'T work, at least not flawlessly.

      Is that why my posts disturb you so much, because they make you look stupid?

      Check my Edge 5w-30 UOA and get back to us. Please explain how it works so well (in the latest VW engines), and has NO VW 502.

      Hard proof that VW 502 is for jokers...yeah, you're right...none here wants to read that.

      I think Hans is right
      for ex. Amsoil doesn't want to pay VW to test the oil-- it cost some serious money to do it. I am positive Amsoil would qualify for 502 without any issues (if Valvoline did then Amsoil would def pass 502 hopping on one foot with one arm tied, while blindfolded)
      i have just dumped Rotella T6 in my mk5 -- we will see what happens in 10k.

      Lubrizol makes it pretty easy to directly compare oils.

      I have yet to see a bad UOA from 5w-30. In fact, all the new VW 504 oils are 5w-30. We simply get the best visc oil for the best price in USA. Euro extended drain oils are fine for old ladies and dealership inclusive new-car service. Anyone here can DIY their own oil changes at 5000 miles, using synth only for turbos, and get the best overall engine performance and economy.


      Someone show me some bad UOAs and we'll go from there. The ones I have show the same wear rates from fancy Euro 5w-40 as 5w-30 jug oil.

      5w-30 is half as thick as 5w-40 when starting in the cold. That's a lot better for the turbos and for short trips, warming up, mpg....

      So currently the most updated is still 505.01?

    18. 02-25-2012 02:25 AM #123
      VW 504 and 507 are current, along with the pump-dusse spec...possibly the 505.01

      Has anyone tried this ?
      It says vw 502 and 504 approved ! And says its extreme conditions where normal oils don't perform.
      If I run my 04 jetta gls 1.8t through mobile 1 web site for the lube shop they recommend 0w40 euro spec.
      But if I run the info with a 04 passat 1.8t it will give a diff part number for an oil filter and also recommend this oil 5w30
