Just changed oil myself for the first time on this car with Castrol LL 508.00 approved 0W-20. This UOA was from the 2nd dealer change (included with purchase price of car). It's better than I thought it would be!

Glad you posted this. Lately, there have been a number of people on here saying they would not use this oil in their new VW products and instead want to run 502 oils, etc. I use onlt the 508 oils in my 2019 Passat and am very pleased with them. I think that this shows that the VW engineers knew what they were doing!

Thanks wemay…. I forgot about that one. I know we're comparing 2 different cars/drivers but based on both of these UOA's, I think the Castrol held its own vs. the premium priced LM TopTech. Just thinking (typing) out loud here... both fine oils in this application.

If using this one data point of single UOA per oils, I'd say it held up extremely well considering it was in service for significantly more mileage. Thanks for posting yours, oily boyd. It makes my diarrhea of the mouth, constant discussion of using heavier oils after the current fill, seem pointless.

Did the dealer say what brand of 508 oil it was? Asking because VW/Audi supposedly went from recommending Castrol 508 to Mob1 508 a year or so ago.
