Well looks like VW/Audi has officially switched brands from Castrol to their own Branded oil. which you can see by the bottles is Mobil.

all other weight oil will all be under VW high performance oil (mobil)

this is the only oil ive seen so far! 0W30
This oil is rated 507.00 for all common-rail TDIs and fully backwards compatible with the 505.01 standard, too, making it suitable fro all TDIs

Remember the retail price?

I just checked the Castrol website and VW/Audi are no longer shown as one of Castrol's "partners". Nothing yet on the Mobil website.

Yep, safe to say it's XOM manufactured oil. Bottle same design as current Mobil Super Synthetic.

"Genuine Nissan Motor Oil" same bottle design as shown here.

huh....that's cheaper than you can normally fine M1 0W30 ESP. I did pick up a couple of changes on sale for $5.99, but that's a pretty solid deal.

Yep, I usually pick up the ESP 0w30 at Napa for $5.99 when they're on sale a few times during the year.

While it may be back-spec'd to 505.01, please, no one ever needs to run this in a PD TDI. Stick with 5w40 CJ or newer oil... the higher the HTHS, the better.
