Any brand of oil that meets the VW 507 spec will be fine.. If I'm not mistaken Rotella t6 doesn't meet VW 507 spec


I prefer Pentosin Super Performance III 5w30

The big thing on VW507 is emissions / MPG related.



That said - I try to use VW 507 in my CR TDI as well.

I once was able to find Castrol at a local parts store. They did not even know they had it! Most places don't stock 507 VW spec oil. Just not enough TDIs out there. Dealer is also an option.
Best deals are online (IDParts, fcp euro, Amazon, etc...)
