BTDT.  Following some research, I've settled on 5w40.  Castrol is supplying 
a SYNTEC to VOA/AUDI with p/n ZVW 352 540s .  It's pricey as it is sourced 
through dealers but I have found a source for Pentosin "PENTOSYNTH" 5w40 
which may be what Audi is filling the new cars with - the owners manual for 
a 2000 A6 doesn't even have the temp/viscosity chart but simply says the 
car was filled at the factory with 5w40 and is good for all temp ranges and 
if you can't find 5w40 then use 5w30.

see http://www.pentosin.de/eng/Products/products.html there is even a 10w60 !
