Had my A5 180p 2.0T for a few months now and have had to top the oil up every 1000 miles. I have done 3500 miles in 4 months. Unfortunately last time I topped up, I threw away the bottle of oil. I know it is Castrol but not sure what type to get from Halfords. Can someone help me? I would use the manual but alas I have left that in my other house.

Engine Oil

Now you can use Castrol GTX or Duckhams Hypergrade, but for varible valve
engines such as Audi A5, there is only one specially designed for BMW Audi and
Mercedes engines,and it is called Liqui Moly 5W-30 Top Tec4200, quite a mouthful, and it does not come cheap, but you pay for the best, you can't buy it in Halfords.
