    I want to purchase motul 10w40 motylgear but it is unavailable where i am located, so i can get motul motylgear 75w-90 for a really good deal ,both are gl4/gl5 so has anyone tried the motul motylgear 75w-90 and is it safe to run since it is also compatible with gl5?

    I just bought this car a few months ago and I've been spending a lot of time and money fixing her up. The clutch was really worn so I had it changed out this weekend with the S4 upgrade and ECS lightweight flywheel. Before the clutch change the gears were slightly notchy and just figured it was...

    Does anyone use motul? I have used it only once when I first got the car and it was awesome...I want to start using it regularly. Motul 300V Power 5w40 Racing Motor Oil | This one to be exact...any opinions?^^^

    I already picked up some oil for my next change, but assuming this oil is ok for gas engines (which it should be, since it is VW 502 compliant, but the label implies it is more for diesels), this is a steal! World Impex has it on sale for $5/liter which is a steal, since most Motul oils are $8...

    I've had this stuff in my gearbox for about 9 months now and wanted to wait until the cold weather set in to fully evaluate it. It is advertised as good for hard-to-shift transmissions. Previously I have tried stock, Royal Purple Maxgear, Redline MT-90, and Motul Gear 300. Out of those, the...

    Well, I used to use Motul E-tech 8100 0w-40, however, it is being phased out. When I talked to a gentleman from Motul today, he said that i should use Motul Specific 505.01/502.00/505.00, and that it was better for my car because it was specifically formulated for VW specifications. I asked...

    I bought a 2002 Wagon 1.8T , Auto triptronic, with 86K on it. I'm now at 95K and think about switching to Motul oil. Is it safe to use the Motul engine cleaner before changing to Motul oil? Could it release deposits that could jam the oil strainer. The strainer was changed when I bought the car...

    (Yet another oil thread, yes I know -- Search didn't really help this time ;) ) Does anyone have any opinions on Motul 8100 0W-40 E-tech vs Motul 8100 5W-40 X-cess? From what I can tell they're both VW502 certified oils, correct? Currently I'm running Mobil 1 0W-40. Any opinions, good or bad...

    I have been using Mobil 0W-40 since day one, but Im just thinking if Motul and if the price is well worth it? I heard its like "gold" some VW owners say. I use the big bertha Mahn filters and about 5quarts of the Mobil synthetic every oil change.

    Getting ready for the 40k mile service and want to take some extra precautions to protect my W8. I was searching oils on the net and came across Motul's 8100 Ester E-Tech 0W-40. Their Product Data Sheet states: Recommended for Audi TT and S3 and all W engines from Volkswagen group. STANDARDS...

    My dealer is selling 5L bottles for $35 including the filter and it meets 505.01 specs. I'm sure I can find it locally or on-line for cheaper. Just wondering if anyone else is running the Motul 5W-40. Looking for something I can run in both my car and my wife's TDI so I don't have to keep two...

    What's the latest conventional wisdom on this oil? I've read all 18 threads containing 'Motul'. Looks good: TYPE OF USE Specially designed for cars powered by Volkswagen Turbo Diesel engine (unit injector). Suitable for all types of VW gasoline (except VW 502 00) or Diesel engines, using...

    Anyone know anything about these guys? I'm looking my next oil change and a local VW tuner shop uses Motul 6100 Synthetic motor oil in 5w40. I searched but came up with nothing. Please don't tell me to use x-brand or y-brand, I've read thru all the posts about oil you've all posted - and I...
