:confused: Great information. I have a new 2006 NewBeetle TDI. I've started checking and can't find the 502 & 505 spec oil anywhere. Besides the dealer, where is it available in the USA?

you need the 505.01 oil in your 06 tdi not the 505.00. :)

:confused: I'm confused. I have several cases of Castrol Syntec, SAE 5W-40 Full synthetic motor oil. VW 502.00, 505.00. "Offers full synthetic performance, engineered specifically to meet the Volkswagen engine warranty requirements including testing in VW TDI engines". Can I used this oil in my 2006 VW TDI?

No, but I'll buy it off you for use in my VR6. :)

You can get 505.01 in bulk from ecstuning.com.

:mad: I have 60 quarts. Good stuff, too bad it won't work in the PD TDI. Shipping will make even a couple of cases cost prohibitive. I can sell it at work. Thanks!

The dealer that I have my oil change uses the oil you described above. It has worked for 15000 miles so far.
