The car is a 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI 6 speed

This is the first fill on Pennzoil Euro LX 0W-30, this oil is 507.00 approved

All previous fill were Castrol Edge LL03 that was purchased at the dealership.

Nice steady performance.
It looks as though 15k km is your OCI plan.
It could be pushed out further; your wear rates are very low overall, contamination very low, TBN strong. I would consider 20k km for the next one.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

Wondering if that Golf has been modified by VW to comply with Canadian standards? I thought the big recall was multi-nation.

15K Km is the OCI recommended by VW, which I decided to follow while still under warranty.
Now that the warranty is over I will be stretching oci, starting by 17,500 km then more after uoa

At the time of this uoa the Golf had not been yet repaired, it now is though.
No noticeable changes have been seen so far
