On the decision tree, I did state it and ordered it lower than the shades of grey category. I stated it was my .02 preference. I did state it was NON 507.00.

Indeed, I have been using NON VW specification oil for 120,000 miles AND with 25,000 miles OCI's. (Delvac One 5w40, aka Mobil One TDT, etc) Again you would not know this to look at the labels, but it did and continues to meet higher standards. (VW 505.00?) see my signature for the information if interested.
