Haven't found it on the web...

The only place I've been able to locate Mobil 1 OW-40 is at Wal-Mart (not offered on their web site). Scary, but true.

Only the larger AZO stores stock 0W-40. The smaller ones won't even special-order it, due to "corporate policy." :(

Get a Purolator L40316. Cost the same as a Mann and have larger capacity
It IS a Mann. :) That is my current filter-of-choice, at $1 to $2 on sale at PepBoys, but it is a tight squeeze, at least on AUG and AWM 1.8Ts.

No all of them, some of them are white, and some black with a sticker on them, both of these are a lighter version of the Mann and have a different top on them. I weighted them and they were lighter.

Meeting VW 502 00 for less ...

oil-store.com
QS Synth Euro Ultra 5w30 - $24.99 for 6/1qt (4.17 each, 5.53 after shipping)
Penn Synth 5w40 Euro - $25.69 for 6/1qt (4.28 each, 5.64 after s&h)

For being shipped, that's about the best I've seen.

Then again, my local AutoZone carries the stuff on a regular basis, so what do I care ...

I just got my filter at my dealer for 10.97. Yup its the big one too.
Mobil 1 at Checker was 5.99. I just needed so I didn't search around.

CSK (partsamerica.com) sells oil off there website. Ive always had good results ordering parts though the website. Going through the local stores usually has lead to problems. You can always return cores and parts to the store even if you buy online. Plus, parts are cheaper online a lot of the time. Just my .02.

I bought a flywheel a while ago. Online = 34.99 + 34.99 core
In store = 60.99 + 34.99 core

Usually free shipping on orders over $50 and they will match the online price in store too, but why bother!

Yeah, haven't done that yet.

Im usually not in a hurry for anything. So I do a little planning ahead of time and order enough to qualify for the free shipping. Otherwise Id probably do the in store pickup.

Pretty amazing the markup they have by just going in over the counter.
