synthetic oils

to all synthetic oil users,
I called Audi last week regarding the use of synthetics and the answer was
that they do not endorse any kind of oil (meaning you can use synthetic)
they don't recommend any kind in specific but you can use any oil so long
as it meats the correct SAE rating) I asked about the break in period and
the answer was to follow the owners manual, so according to the answer, you
can break in your engine in any kind of oil you want.....
Years ago (late 80) there answer was to not use it and the Audi rep. I
talked to did not recommend synthetics (that was after Audi went to all
synthetic transmission and differential oil).
