      Also, what if I were to put 6 qts in instead of 5.8 - I've always tried to get close to 5.8 (Castrol 5W30) but it seems silly.

      The only problem with that is that when you change the oil, you dont get all the old oil out. So if you start out putting 6qt in, you'll find you might be a little over full. I usually put in 5.5 quarts or so and it is usually right on.

      yes.. same basic procedure.. I have never worked on a 12V.. other than the diffrent filter and possibly a diffrent oil quanitly it should be about the same.

      Hey FLdude -- thanks for the great post.
      Dumb question here, but...
      What do you do with the old oil?

      bring it to a recycling center or go to a PEPBOYS or STRAUSS AUTO and they take it (well around me they do)

      most places that change oil are required to have a place for the public to dispose of their oil, or you can just drop it off to them. In Texas, most Wal-Marts with the auto center have disposal tanks.

      My car is leased....is it worth changing my own oil? I was quite satisfied taking it to the dealership...found a great mechanic and it ended up leaving...close to home, only $28 dollars...too good to be true I guess.

      if it's leased then i wouldn't bother putting synthetic or any of the goodies in it. I would just pay the dealer to change the oil.

      Yes, my (now former) '93 VR6 procedure was the same. Filter looks different, but all the other is the same. That engine took 6.1Qt for a full oil change and my '03 24V VR6 also takes 6.1Qt per the manual.

      But what if you fall in love with it and wind up wanting to buy it?
      NAH! Not gonna happen when the R32 is sitting outside during lease end/ lease buyout negotiations

      Well...i found out that according to the dealership this new number I stated above is a newer part...replaces the older wavey style insert. Just an FYI.

      Read this post for the first time. Awesome job.
      Wish you would consider doing one for tire rotation with a floor jack + stands
      Questions: Is 5W-40 the same as synthetic? Can't find it anywhere. My car still has factory oil in it but says I can use 5W-30 (SJ) if available.
      What are your thoughts on this? Never used synthetic in the past and am unaware of true pros/cons of oil vs. synthetic.
      Thank you.

      In your climate NEVER use 5W-30 oil! It's too thin for the engine (according to the manual for warm weather) and could cause damage. Go to Autozone, or Pepboys (or what ever auto parts store is down there) and get 6 quarts of "Mobil 1 Synthetic, 0W-40", that is what your engine should have in it. It's approved for the VW standard mentioned in the manual (as well as most other German and Japanese cars). Just changed mine the other day and it runs wonderfully!

      Hrmph... When we went into the Parts dept to get a new filter, my bf asked the service guy, 'Whats VW using in the 24V VR6.. synthetic?' The service rep says in what car, we respond '03 GLI' and the rep says no, that application does notn call for synthetic....

      Was he crazy??

      To my knowledge, no, it doesn't require synthetic, but should you use it? I know I do. It's better the engine, especially since the recommended drain interval is 10K miles after the first 2 changes.

      I can't find x-40 wt synthetic at any of my local retailers!

      No Mobile 1 0W-40 Synthetic? Weird. You could ask Autozone to order it for you. Or just find an online place and order that or (if you want the really good stuff) Redline or Amsoil.

      Can anyone confirm the above number is the correct part number now used?
