I know a lot of independent mechanics and DIY owners of TDIs prefer other brands, but I like to stick the OEM oil and this is it. I swear I can hear a difference at idle between this and the Pentosin that I've tried before. Granted, as long as your BEW engine gets an oil that is 505.01 compliant all should be copacetic, but I've been a Castrol user since long before my first VW diesel, so…

It's worth noting that the oil shipped is different from the one in the picture. Apparently there's an "oil authenticity" program that Castrol and the VW dealer network are engaged in and the new oil has a fluorescent dye in it. The oil is otherwise identical and still meets various VW standards including 505.01. The new oil is in gold bottles instead of black and is labeled as Castrol EDGE Professional OE 5W-30 instead of SLX.

Living in a rural area I must travel 250 miles to have my VW Jetta's oil changed.
Besides the cost It takes me soooooo long, so I decided to change my own oil, which I do on other vehicles.

The VW Jetta requires special oil which I haven't found around here, so I ordered it on line
This ebay seller showed a picture of the same oil my shop had been using so I ordered.
BUT
When I received the oil it was a different product.
The seller sent me Castrol EDGE Professional OE 5-30W oil
This has different specifications and may or may not be compatible.

SO
I hesitate to change the oil for not
Hope the seller clears up my concerns

Service was great, oil is a very good product. What's not to like? Reccomended by VW for this engine, and well deserved.
