    Hi

    Do dealers use the same oil on the major service and the intrim service? Do they use the long life oil only on major service and different oil on intrim?

    Hi I am also interested in this............

    I was told (quietly) by my dealership (owned by a big scottish chain) that the same oil is used for standard and long life major and minor AND also for their value service.

    I would be very keen to know if this is true and also what oil it is!! Can all VW's use the same oil say over the last 6-10 years if it meets the correct specs?!

    When I researched this a number of years ago they were using Quantum LongLife 5W-30 (5L). I think the garages buy it in bulk but not 100% sure.

    For my own servicing (main and interim) I was buying it from my local Audi garage but when the price increased I changed to online purchase. Last year I purchased 20L delivered to England from Scotland at very good price.

    I have used it in all the VAG cars in the family (4).
