I have had 3 garages tell me 3 different oil weights to use the last 4 oil changes the book says 5-40, I've been told 5-20 so the oil ports in the turbo dont clog up?

Just looking for some real advice.
Thanks for your time

go with what audi tells you to use, i use mobil1 5w-40. your safest bet is what audi says, if you want to change then thats up to you really.

The Audi owners manual for 1999 1.8T lists 5-30, 10-30, 5-40, and 10-40 as acceptable oils to use. The local Audi dealer in Portland uses 5-30 Castrol in my '99 Avant.

So long as it's synthetic, all should be fine.
