    Best oil so far

    540i engine would make knocking sounds on cold starts after weeks of sitting with other synthetic oils but with Edge, no noise.

    Got these during black friday sale. For a "synthetic" oil, it rates as OK IMO. The base product is a highly refined dino oil. I would rate this product number 2 behind Mobil 1, which is a tri-synthetic, laboratory processed and IMO a much more balanced synthetic engine oil. Dont expect to get 15K miles out of this oil; follow your oil life monitor, or, i would say 7500 miles and/or 6 months service life would be the max.

          Another great deal form Advanced Auto. Have used this same oil in all my vehicles and great luck with it. Better fuel consumption, wouldn't use anything else. Have no negative comments about this product. The deal from Advanced Auto parts was without a doubt a deal truly to good to pass up.

              Comments about Castrol Edge 5W-30 Fully Synthetic Motor Oil (1 Quart):

              Most synthetic oils are similar in their own ways with different additives, as long as anyone keep their maintenance up to date and do it on a consistent manner, it does matter if they use conventional or synthetic. It is a myth that people think that you can't go back to regular motor oil once you use synthetic, I attended a seminar once where part of the session describes how people came up with that idea. Now, do you think once you go synthetic you can't go back to regular, then why would they have synthetic BLEND? Think about that!!!!.......

                              Hi Jeff, I'm glad to assist you! The Volkswagen 505.01 engine oil is specifically formulated to ensure protection of the cam lobes that drive the unit injectors. High loading requires the proper level of anti-wear protection. In turn Volkswagen needs to ensure that 505.01 is utilized for this engine design. The camshafts are mechanically driven and assist in the buildup of fuel pressure in each injector. Castrol 505 01 is only available in North America through Volkswagen dealerships. It is branded as Castrol 505 01 or Castrol Edge Professional oil and has a Volkswagen part number (ZVW-352-167-Q-DSP).

                              No. This meets other Audi specs, but not the VW 507.

                              For more information, please refer to this service bulletin by Audi USA. It will tell you which particular oils comply with that. I do belive there is a like weight that is in a simular container, but sold outside of the US. There are other oils from that manufacturer that meet or exceed that standard.

                              Hope that helps!

                              Yes, you can switch to synthetic oil on your Infiniti M30. After switching to synthetic, you should use a slightly higher weight. For example if 5W 30 in mineral, switch to 10W 30 in synthetic. But be sure to stay with it once you switch to synthetic. However, I would suggest you to get assistance from the technicians of your nearest Infiniti Dealership before switching to synthetic in order to avoid intermittence.
