Problem is, API has not produced an oil that can be used in a VW since '03. I don't see that fact changing any time soon. I'm using the above statement on "502.00" as it is applied across the entire product line regardless of engine. Use a compliant oil or don't come around asking for warranty coverage on protected components.

IM0, the easiest thing to do is just run an OE graded oil and forget about all the other nonsense. We'll all be able to drive more and worry less

Happy New Year, E !
