    Is there any major difference in using this oil compared to going to the dealership?

    I use Motul 8100 X-Clean 5W40 for all of my oil changes. It is a quality VW 502.00 spec oil, with no issues in terms of performance or warranty.

    Concur. You can get the 8100 X-clean 5W40 from ECS tuning pretty reasonably.

    It appears many dealerships are still using Castrol Edge, which is a decent synthetic oil, but maybe no the best for use in a turbo car, and certainly not for 10,000 mile oil change intervals.

    Folks who have been using Motul 5W-40 at 5,000 mile oil change intervals seem to be having little to no issues with their cars.

    Just anecdotal evidence and not gospel, but in my mind a bit of extra money to keep everything running clean is worth it compared to some of the nightmare repairs you hear about on here.

    I am the second owner of our A7 and the previous owner had always had it serviced at the dealer so I am assuming it had a steady diet of the Castrol Edge. One of the things I moticed was it used oil to the tune of about 1 quart per 2,000 miles. My first change with ithe car I used the Castrol Edge and the oil consumption continued at roughly the same rate. Next change I switched to Mobil 1 0W40 and it runs great on this stuff plus it cost about the same. I am 1,000 miles into the Mobil 1 and I am using zero oil. I had considered the Motul but it was a bit more expensive plus I would have to order it online. Motul is supposed to be quality oil but with having to order it I might just stick with the Mobil 1 to be honest.

    Thanks to all for their perspective input, to me the car does feel like it wants to move a lil quicker might be all in my mind but happy with the results nonetheless

    I just did an oil change with motul Xtreme. So far so good. Seems like good quality oil and I think the car likes it. 60k miles.
