Hoping the participants of this very informative thread are still around, and with the number of buyback cars now finding new owners maybe this thread will become more active again. I bought my TDI two weeks ago and have been studying the emissions system with great interest this being my first SCR diesel. Here is my big question: When I bought the car from a wholesaler they had the oil changed at a quick lube place. I drove it almost 1,000 highway miles before I realized the oil they used was Valvoline 5w40 Blue Full Synthetic. I went to a VW dealer and had it replaced with VW 507 spec oil as soon as I realized it. Do you think there will be any long term effects from the 1K miles without the low ash oil? The car presently has 28K miles on it.
