Any suggestions for type of oil? your posts of your car have made me envious and inspired me to start saving for my own custom mods. I was thinking to keep the car mostly stock, but it looks like with some good research and work, modding is totally worth it.
Considering how much attention to detail you've got, any suggestions on a 2013 brand new gti at 700 miles for the first oil change. I want to change it at 1000. I drove like a granny up to 200 miles barely pass 2k. now just since 600 i've been playing around with the 4/5k range maybe once or twice a trip. I've got the DSG.
I've been told Shell Rotella 5w40 or Castrol Edge 5w40. Both fit the fully synthetic and vw requirements but I'd like to know the BEST for a gti in general and especially for a first oil change. I've heard from many people that there was a lot of metal shavings and they didn't regret changing the oil much sooner than the dealership recommended. sorry for long post, thanks for reading!
