Default My '00 S4 did not have syn oil spec'ed. I 've had M1 in it since 4K miles.....

AFAIK, factory fill, nor dealer, NEVER used synthetic unless the owner payed for it...warranty change or otherwise. I'm having a problem finding 5W-40 synthetic for my wife's '03 Passat 4-motion which is the manual recommendation (5W-40). Mobil1 has a 0W-40 tho.I know who mfg's it...just not in my geographical location in Lehigh Valley, PA for availability.

Default Well, the reason I say synthetic is that 5w40 was the spec and no one ever found a 5w40 dino oil.

Default 5w40 was my spec and the only one making it was Valvoline but I wasn't going to run Valvoline . . .
