VAG (in the UK, at least) have two 'own brands' of oil.

Synta is described as having "a synthetic base".

Synta Gold is "fully synthetic".

My local VAG dealer is trying to get me to convert to Synta for the
Passat and Synta Gold for the ur-quattro.  Since I now have the _ONLY_
ur-quattro in their area they're keen to have me as a reference
customer - it seems a lot of Audi buyers still recognise the ur-quattro.
