Since there seems to be much debate as to which oils are actually approved for use in 505.01 applications by VW/Audi and which oils are only recommended for use in 505.01 applications by their respective manufacturers, I gathered a list of VW/Audi approved 505.01 oils from the Audi Approved Oil list.

These oils are required for VW TDIs, and many of the new gasoline powered engines, such as the 2.5L 5-cyl and the 3.2L 6-cyl in the VW and Audi, respectively.

Below, I have listed a link to the Product Data Sheet, where they may be obtained, and their price, before any shipping charges or taxes:

1) Motul 505.01 Specific, 5L jug.
Look for the Product Data Sheet on the bottom of this page as this forum software does not allow parenthesis in the HTML tag.

Currently onsale for $32/5L jug at World Impex

Actually, it'd be much wiser to buy the 5L jug of Motul 505.01 specific in the "oil change kit," which includes a new OEM oil filter and new drain plug and washer for only $40 total, instead of buying the oil only for $32.

2) Elf Excellium DID 5w-40
Product Data Sheet

Avaliable at tdiparts for $35/5L.

3)Pentosin TS 5w-40
(I was unable to locate a product data sheet for this oil)

Purchase it at tdiparts for $29.95/5L.
