Just arrived last night. I will have the dealer install this oil when I get my inspection sticker in December.

Have you confirmed that the dealer will do it?

Excellent. Our Lordco Auto Parts sells Motul but I have not seen the 508 here yet. Looks like a scoop!

The French make great oil. Either Motul or Total, for all we know they meet specs they say they do.
ECSTuning sent me a batch of Castrol 508 0w20 with an OE style oil filter recently and seem to be reliable after a period where it seems everybody complained about their customer service. I think they turned that bad behavior around now !

I am buying for years from ECS and never, never had an issue. If something was wrong they would promptly react. That being siad, I never had issue with other too like AutohausAZ, FCP etc.

I've also ordered for years from ECS Tuning without issue.

Why the Motul over the Castrol Professional?

Looks like there was a company management problem. They bought Pelican, etc,, a long story.
Should be fine now.

The VW. Dealer put unknown bulk oil during first service and wouldn't show me label on tank, I've lost 3 MPG running average and the turbo spool up is sluggish and noisy. Prior the FF felt thin but easy to get high MPG over 40 MPG when lugging around town.

Ill report if this fixes it of not. The Motul is on the low side for a 20, like the Subaru stuff.

Not yet, but they will do most anything. They even let me under the car when they were doing the rear spring recall. They have just been "cagey" about the oil the used on my first service. The MOTUL is VW 508.00 / 509.00 Porsche C20 approved so they shouldn't have any quibbles.
They may charge me for a full OC service, regardless of BYO lube.

I don't care about a VOA on the Motul. It is known as areal synthetic (majority PAO**), and the modern additive packages are a mystery we cant unravel so why pretend.

**See the 62degF below zero pour -point on the TDS posted in this thread.

I posted VOA for Motul and Total, and there is a good 3rd party study done on some VW508 oils here: https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru...5332/4/which-508-00-oil-would-you-choose

UV fluorescence disappears very quickly in use so is unlikely to show up in an end-of-service oil sample, even if it was there to start with. If the oil is a genuine, VW-approved 508 00/509 00 oil it should have Zr in it, which isn't routinely tested in UOAs.
