i covered this some months ago on here that the R5 must only use 506.01, even opieoils :!: were stating you could use 507.00 until i corrected them on it.
Even my local TPS, which is VW parts distributor wanted to sell me 507.00
I was in Halfords today and noticed they are flogging fully synthetic 5/30 which is specifically marked for long life VW/Audi applications - petrol and diesel - but the small print shows it is 507.

Having just bought my V10 I am keen to change the oil to be on the safe side so I popped into my local dealer - Autohaus Northampton to see what they had to say. I asked the relevant questions (without giving away what I thought it should be :wink: ) and the parts chappy came back with "you must use LL2 506.01 with it being a V10"
. He had a look but was unable to find any so then continued to call 3 other local dealers who also failed to stock it :x

Anyway, the bottom line is that the V10 takes 11.5 litres of the slippy stuff so he did a bit more digging and found that the best thing for me to buy would be a 20l drum :shock:

So I would like your opinion on the price of ?150+vat for a 20l drum? I make that ?8.63 a litre


Cheers,

Rich

Well thats sounds good but I wonder how a warranty would hold up if an owner took his own oil when a service was due, the VW guys filled the car and then something went wrong?? Just a thought?
