    DSG oin and normal oil for 2014 passat tdi CR

    Hi

    i am due for big service - DSG oil and normal service. I wonder if someone can tell me:

    - how much dsg oil car need and where to buy?
    - best oil for diesel passat and how much litres need?

    i do not worry about price, just want best for car.

    idea is: i want provide my oil to dealer to do for me.

    Sorry if repeat post..

    Brand is not as important as the specs and manufacturer approvals.

    For the sake of maybe saving $50-$60 it's probably not really worth the effort trying to source and supply your own oil. The dealer isn't going to put inferior oil in it.

    Hi

    I am little bit confused since Castrol edge titanium 5w-30 LL is VW approved oil.
    Why dealer would not put better oil if approved by VW?

    Just because they use the word "Titanium", it doesn't mean that the product is better than the other approved oils.

    Castrol isn't the only approved VW oil.

    There's a whole list of them.

    Most dealers don't even stock the 5L Castrol anymore.

    Penrite Enviro+ 5w-30 is widely used by members on here as a very good quality oil that meets/exceeds VW specs. It is also well priced and Australian made:Penrite Enviro+ Engine Oil - 5W-30, 5 Litre - Supercheap Auto

    As for DSG oil, Audi VW BMW DSG Transmission Oil 1L G052182A2 Run Auto Parts OR LIQUI MOLY Dual Clutch Transmission Oil 8100 1L Audi/VW DSG | Sparesbox | Sparesbox

    Because its all about the profit margins .... our local VW dealer is using Valvoline vw 504 507 spec because they get it cheaper then castrol

    Nothing wrong with that if it’s VW approved.
    Personally the Castrol is the last oil I’d use.
