    We know the vw "long life engine oil VW 507 00" service schedule can be up to 18,000 miles. But some people said the long life engine oil must work with the "long life engine oil filter". Otherwise the filter will fail before the engine oil due.


    The long life filter is the zig zag like below picture. The vw main dealership also use this kind of filter.


    Is that ture? I found like BOSCH MANN filter only provide linear tyre filer.


    How to choose the best one for vw car?

    Personally, I just use a MANN filter and change oil and filter atleast every 10'000 miles. Not a great believer of the long life routine myself but each to their own.

    Thank you for your reply. The longlife 18,000 miles service need some precondition, from vw said:
    Fixed Service (Time and Distance)
    We recommend this service if you are likely to drive less than 10,000* miles in a year, and if you tend to drive in the following way:


    Mainly city centre driving, short journeys with frequent cold starts
    High engine loading activities, e.g. frequent hill climbs, driving with your vehicle fully loaded and towing
    Uneconomical driving using high rpms with heavy acceleration and heavy braking.

    Flexible Service Regime (LongLife Service)
    We recommend this service if you are likely to drive more than 25 miles a day, and if you tend to drive in the following way:


    Regular long distance driving
    Driving at a constant speed with minimum vehicle and engine loading, and minimal towing
    Economical driving



    I think if always long distance motorway mileage, that will be fit for.

    Long life serving has been a disaster, the number of engines it has destroyed is beyond counting...
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Because the best oil ever made and it’s filter can JUST possibly care for an engine 18700 miles a few times in a cars early life and this was very carefully calculated as an absolute maximum, simply just to sell new cars on lease. Unfortunately people who own cars or more pertinently “rent” them do not, as a whole, like spending money on maintaining them and so they think, “it’ll be OK until next month and the next and the next then suddenly the oil and filter have done 23, 4, 5 miles until they get changed. Recently on here we had a ruined A7 a chap bought and I looked up its on line service info, I can’t remember the specifics but one oil change nearly had a 4 as its first interval number and surprise surprise, the engine was FUBAR. I bought my current car at four years old with a totally destroyed engine and turbo, simply due to service interval abuse, the rebuild costs were more than the cars value at the time but a decade later it is still a good car as I look after it.

    What is “life”? They are training us for battery life expectancy so when a ten year old car needs a new battery costing twice what the car is worth, we will be pre conditioned to accept this, scrap the car and buy a new one. Car manufacturers do not give a **** what a car is powered by as long as they can keep the production lines moving and who can blame them, it is simple economics and provides the world with millions of jobs.

    Been happening for years on almost every electrical and mechanical product manufactured. As Crasher said the motor industry has to keep the product lines moving so cars will never be properly built to last. Oil companies are buying battery, solar and electrical tech companies to ensure their future but don't you think the car manufacturers have already pushed economy and other boundaries far ahead of what we know? No car manufacturer can introduced a mass production car that carries 4 people in comfort and covers 250 miles per gallon of fuel (any of them). Bet they have engines or engine prototypes capable of this already though but just can't use them as it would break the economic equilibrium in one hit. The fuel demand rate would slowly and significantly fall away pushing up the price so eventually the 250 mile per gallon car will cost £6.50 or more per litre to fill impacting on everyone including those who don't have such a vehicle with their's having a low economy figure. Oil is still prominent in running the world's economy, for now and some time to come.
