Re: Synthetic Oil Change Intervals?
1) I feel change oil at 6000 miles, incl. oil filter change. My Coupe
has passed 103,000 miles with this care and oil consumption has not
from when I bought it at 19,000 miles (approx. 2000 mi/qt.)
2) You shouldn't have any problems with sub-zero temps as long as the battery
is good. I had my Coupe out when temp dropped overnight to -25 F, cranked
slowly but still caught readily (Castrol Syntec in engine, Red Line synthetic
in tranny& diff). W/W wipers were something else; had to wait until engine
heat warmed up the motor before they worked.

Subject: Synthetic Oil Change Intervals?
I just put Castrol synthetic in my 95.5 S6 @ 10,000 miles on the odo.
Can I go 7,500 miles (Audi maintenance freebes) with the synthetic, or
do you guys thing I can harm turbo and or rest of the moving parts?
I could be keeping this car till it drops, as I drive 25K miles per year
on the highway. What about in January, when my car sits at the airport
in the sub-zero temps for 2 days?
I would greatly appreciate anyones comments...
