Hello everyone.

So a friend of mine did an oil change for my manual 99 volkswagen Beetle Turbo with 195k miles. He used mag1 5 30w motor oil. Is that oil to be used for a Beetle?

What engine does your car have? Different engines; have different VW specs, that oils used should meet.

Looking at their website; this oil, probably meets the typical VW spec:

5W-40 FULL SYNTHETIC EUROPEAN FORMULA: (meets: VOLKSWAGEN 501 01, 502 00, 505 00)

Maybe, email the company's tech support and see if it meets VW's specs for your particular engine.
