Go on the Castrol website and look for the oil recommendation section.
It will tell you to use Castrol Edge 0W-30, which is synthetic, for best oil. For second best it says use Magnatec 10W-40, which is semi syn.
You pays your money and takes your chance.

The excellent independent VW garage that I use in Derby is called Sunset VW and is in Parcel Terrace, off Uttoxeter New Road.
They are a father, mother and son operation. (the mother is in the office!)

PS Don't be afraid, I don't bite.

Quizman, I religiously use Castrol engine oil in my Mazda 323 diesel but I'm not too sure about their recommendations on their website. My car manual recommends 10w-40 whereas Castrol recommends 5w-30.
Wouldn't they be recommending more expensive products and obviously that makes business sense too.

The handbook says 5-30 Fully Synthetic - + many others 10-30, 10-40 if fully synthetic not available.

5-30 covers Higher and lower temps than the UK but all the others are deemed OK.

Make sure it is diesel 5-30 or dual petrol & diesel.
