I'm doing my first oil change on my 2000 1.8T with 57K miles (I bought the car used.) I searched through some previous posts on this topic and found that the 3 concensus picks for motor oil used were: German Castrol 0w-30, Valvoline Synpower 5W-40, and Pentosin 5W-40 Synthetic. Some members who mentioned some of these had a V6. I heard that the 1.8 Turbo heats up oil more. So I'm kind of confused as for which one of these (or if there is something better), would be right for my 1.8T. Also, which Oil filter do you guys recommend? Sorry to beat a dead horse but I'd appreciate your help. Thanks!
