Love my Golf Sportwagen 4Mo 1.8 - same as your Alltrack just no lift/cladding. Doing ~7K OCIs on Liquimoly 5W40 and just tired some of their Ceratec. I'm also tuned (Unitronic Stage 1+) and last OCI showed no drama (plenty of additive and no fuel dilution to mention) to take it past 7K.

I know there's no consensus but how about 1st oil change. Would you do 2k after most of high has come off or wait for the 5k.


No, I just do my first at the same interval I do the rest...about 7.5K jut to match it to the tire rotations. For every person that does early first changes, there are a lot more that don't that run their vehicles for a long time with no issue. Mine is tuned and I send it regularly and just do the normal OCIs.

I have a 2017 alltrack SEL (no pano roof leak yet) and am running castrol 0w40. I do use LC in all my other cars but the euro oil is so "beefy" already that I decided no to use LC in it. I was amazed at my first oil change when I emptied the used oil from the extractor how it clung to the sides and darkened the plastic. Never saw that with any of my other cars.
