Any major brand 100% synthetic. In order of preference: Amsoil 5W-40 Valvoline 5W-40 Both meet the VW spec. i'VE BEEN USING 5W50 FROM CASTROL AVAILABLE AT CLUB PRICE, GREAT PERFORMANCE NO PROBLEMS AT ALL I CURRENTLY HAVE 93000K ON THE CAR AND IT RUNS LIKE NEW, ALTHOUGH LAST NIGHT MY SPARK PLUG POPPED OUT WHILE DRIVING, WEIRD SCREW IT BACK IN AND IT'S FINE,NO DAMAGE TO PLUG OR THE TAP ON THE HEAD. PHEWW. GREAT CAR OVERALL, THOUSANDS LESS THAN AUDI A6 WITHOUT AS MUCH PANACHE, BUT WELL WORTH THE PRICE WHEN YOU PUT BOTH CARS HEAD TO HEAD.
