I was looking at a bottle of Liqui Moly Longtime High Tech 5W30 motor oil at Napa and noticed it has approvals for VW 502 and BMW LL-04. It also has other approvals like MB 229.51, API SN, ACEA C3.. .
This oil is fine for VW's 10K OCI's in the U.S., but BMW LL-04 isn't used in the U.S. for gasoline vehicles?

Each manufacturer has its own recommendations. VW says that Full and Mid-SAPS oils are fine in their DI vehicles. If you take a look all 502.00 that have LL-04 also have VW 505.01.
However, I am not sure 10K OCI in 2.0T is good with full SAPS. I did several UOA with M1 0W40 and TBN went down to 2.7 after only 5K, and I drive on HWY mostly, very hard and no issues with fuel dilution.
VW DI? My take? 5K Castrol 0W40 or M1 0W40.
