Is that the oil type listed in the handbook (lost my handbook a while back). I know loads of people prefer to use slightly thinner/thicker oils, synthetic or not etc.....

Just wondered what the actual vw spec is (i've got the blue i 2.5tdi)

I deliberated for ages over this.

My local motor factors uses Morris oils. I emailed Morris helpline and they got back to me the same day with a response + explanation.T:

They recommended 5W40 fully synthetic, although not cheap :( this oil meets the VW specification. I've used it for the past few services without problem.
