b/c its not a fancy German or Euro sounding name that you can brag about on your VW forums!

M1 0w40 is the best value vw502 oil and perfectly fine for everyone's MK7.
Even better, they have $12 rebates a couple of times a year. Stock up and its about $2/qt.

but again, you can't brag about your L'douche boutique oil brand then.

M1 0w40 had a recent reformulation where the oil is now thinner but with more additives.

I've recently switched to 0w40 castrol edge and oil temps are cooler, slightly better mpgs and the motor itself seems to be quieter, significantly less valve train noise.

Maybe.

I think the GTL Pennzoil is still a better buy though.

It has MB 229.6 as well as Ferrari specifications, and costs the same as M1.

GTL pennzoil? Are you referring to 0w40 platinum?
