You are most welcome bud!
ya.... prices were WAAAY better.... back in the days... good ol days........
wait why are you going with thicker oil? 5W50? TSI motors require 5W40..... and what mileage?
202k km now. Whenusing Castrol Edge 5W40 my early Gen1 engine burns 500-700ml over 7k-10k km oil change intervals. My last 2 oil changes I switched to Castrol Edge 5W50 and the oil consumption went down to less than 400ml over the 7500 km oil change Peroid. Essentially using only one 5 litre bottle of Castrol Edge 5W50 between both oil changes.
I really don't see why people geek out on the VW spec oil. The VW Spec is basically a Detergent additive package so you can drive to like 15k-20k km between oil changes. Is that good for the engine, I don't thing so, I change my oil way earlier than that. I may push the change interval to 10k km when we do all highway Milage but mostly the oil is changed between 7k-8k km. If I lived in the city with stop and go all the time the interval would be 5k oil change interval. It's your car, so your choice.
