It was indeed called ASL back in 2007, as I bought some of it back in 2007 and remember it distinctly. I actually still have my UOA from that oil bought back in 2007 and it had around 50ppm of Moly.

T6 has always been IMO the best bang-for-the-buck TDI oils for non-CR engines. Great looking report, you should consider running it even longer. Lead is a minor spike, might be from a particle streak through a bearing. I wouldn't worry about it unle

Heck, I'd spend a couple hundred just for the noise. Intake noise from a nice inline engine is a wonderful thing. I'd change out the intake on the GTI, but as it turns out they generally don't make a huge difference. I'm guessing the turbo muffles

I agree with dustyroads that the 37K mile analysis looked better than the 50K mile analyses. Viscosity went up, which could indicate oxidation, and the higher viscosity could be affecting your fuel mileage, but probably not to the extent of 1 mpg.
