I haven't seen the ULTRA version available yet, just the Platinum 5w-40 European at the oil-store dot com.

I've called a few of them near me - none of them was able to get it. Go figure.

Yeah, me too. I gave up on it. M1 0w-40 or GC is much easier to find.

Well still been calling around. Can'y find it. Sure would like to know were Lake Forest Sportscars gets their's from.

I can't even find GC! Might try M1 0W-40 at my next oil change. Been using Valvoline SynPower 5W-40 with no issues. Have 60K miles on my '06 GTI with the 2.0L FSI engine. Oil consumption minimal at 1/4 qt. in 5,000 miles (OCI).

Have no idea if my intake valves have any deposits but I'm assuming from the lack of oil consumption I should be OK.

No AutoZones nearby?

M1 0w40 or Syntec 5w40 are two common OTC 502.00 xw40 oils.

I guess Rotella is the 40 grade of choice for Shell fans.

FYI, the part number for Ultra Euro 5w-40 in 1qt bottles is 550022576, at least according to SOPUS tech support. Alas, when I called various Pennzoil retailers, none of them was able to locate such part number in their system. Way to go, SOPUS! smirk
