well you can run what you want as far as oil, but the Audi recommended Mobil 1 weight is 0w-40. If you search it up, you'll find what other people are running.

For coolant run G12 or G12+

Personally I run green coolant. Works fine for my 12v but in about 40k I'll switch to yellow or G12.

Oil I run 10W30 (summer) or 5w40 (winter) with either a purolator L40316 or a wix 51333. My car has historically run with dino oil but after my AutoRX rinse is done I'm going to use synth oil.

Plugs I use Bosch F7LTCR and Bremi wires

Brake fluid: Napa DOT4

i would not run coolant other than the g12, there is a reason why audi tells you to use g12 only.

And what reason is that?

Prevents lime formation does not foam protects against corrosion & cavitations Nitrite Amine & Phosphate Free manufactured to meet the exacting standards of DIN ASTM & DBL & is formulated for all year use. Most importantly it is the OEM fluid for your V/W & Audi.

Is saving a few dollars really so important that you're going to put that other stuff in? IMO, no.

Well I got my car with it in there and I haven't had any issues. Thanks for the info. I'll consider switching once I do my TB and water pump.
