oil changes

Hello fellow canadians,
I just wanted to see what you guys are using for oil. As you know, canada doesn't supply some of the good american oil brands (at least not where I live) and just curious as to what good brand of oil you use on your GTI's

I'm not sure what 'good American oil brands' you want that aren't available.
Mobil 0W-40 or Castrol 0W-40 are available on sale frequently at Canadian Tire and I doubt there is a better oil in the American market than those.

As long as it's VW 502 approved on the back of the jug, I wouldn't think twice about it.

However I do them every 5,000 kms (as opposed to 8,000) just in case.

Also dealer oil filter. You may be able to find some good MANN filters for a few dollars cheaper.
