My 2002, 1.8T Passat has had regular 5,000 mile oil and filter changes. I now want the dealer to switch to synthetic. They say no problem they stock Mobil 1 5W-30.

I have seen some comments about sludge etc. Is there really a serious risk of problems if I switch to synthetic now?

the sooner the better!!!! full synthetic oil is the best, higher heat tolerance=less chance of breakdown>>>>good for turbo since synt. oil doesnt cook, at least not as easy and conventional oil.
