Is the same holding true for engine oil? I've been paying $6.55/qt for Castrol Edge from dealer following the 502 requirement. Is there something comparable as well. I just haven't spent the time searching knowing that full syn is notoriously high.

Go to ECS TUNING they have oil service kits of all different prices/quality that meet 502/505 spec and include an OEM filter and drain plug

Pennzoil 0w-40 Euro is $23/5qts, the 1qt bottles are about $7-8.

23 + 7 + 12 = $42 oil change all told.

Those are some good options, thx. One more thing; my Golf is vehicle 4 and gets driven maybe once a week for 5K/yr. Would there be any oil breakdown by changing the full syn every 2yrs at the 10K interval? It seems like a while to wait but if the syn oil being of supreme quality can stand up to time, if it doesn't need changing, why do it? If it's even questionable, I'll do it at 5K annually...
