Unless I am missing something, German Castrol ("GC") is not on the Audi list. Maybe it does not meet the VW/Audi specifications.:nervous:Pennzoil Platinum European Formula is OK...reg PP is a no go.
Here's the most recent list I've seen:
I'm going with that. The bottle says it has VW 502, 505 and 503.1 certs, as well as all the relevant BMW and Mercedes certs.Then there's always the possibility the list is incomplete...who knows.
He's lucky if his Advanced had 5-30w euro, my stores just had the full syn 5-30w without the VW certs.I'm going with that. The bottle says it has VW 502, 505 and 503.1 certs, as well as all the relevant BMW and Mercedes certs.
The rave reviews the people on BITOG give it + the certs on the bottle = me using it now instead of M1 0W-40. 200 miles and so far the car is happy
I think at this point the only thing I would switch to would be Motul 8100 0W-40. Isn't it like Group V?
it's on this tsb.I noticed that also...that's why I switched to Liqui-Moly Synthoil High Tech 5W40 for my W8. I had NO problems with GC 0W30, but just wanted to stick with something on the list.
Also conspicuous by its absence is Motul 8100 e-tech.
