2015 Golf Sportwagen TDI bought new in 17 when VW was allowed to sell them again. Both oil changes sent to the lab. Oil is VW 507 compliant.

Yes and the last report stated, "All wear levels appear within acceptable limits for first
sample. Silicon level (dirt/sealant material) satisfactory.
Water content acceptable. Fuel dilution satisfactory.
Viscosity within specified operating range. Action: As
oil and filter(s) already changed, resample next service
interval to monitor and establish wear trend."
