Thanks for the offical VW reference giving the thumbs up to using 5W-30 synthetic oil in TDIs. One has to wonder if manufacturers "specify" not-so-common formulas in the hopes it will drive more owners into the dealership for routine maintenance. I understand Ford and Honda have begun to specify 0W-20. These threads help us stay ahead of the game.
