    I have a b5 1.8t living in phoenix arizona where its 115 degrees everyday and night. So I'm wondering what type of oil should I use. I also noticed inside manual, they said not to used 5 30 if you drive in hot weather or at high speed in hot weather.. so does this mean I should use a 5 40

    Only 'kinda' cause I dunno what I'm going to do with the wheels. I might just leave them stock and paint them, as proposed.
