With you 100% on the synth. vs. dinosaur base here,
it is the weight that is under debate.  The manuals
on older Audis also say 5W30, but tons of BTDT
with  engines running strong well past 100k, 200k,
even 300k suggest heavier weight is better for them.
I want my S4 to last that long too, and am interested
in doing the best I can to get there.  If someone
has facts explaining why newer Audi engines are
different, I would like to see it- in the interest
of longetivity of my car.
