At one Audi dealership that I visit, in the parts/service department there's
a sheet of paper taped to the cover of a ring-binder. It lists the oil (and
price per litre) that has to be used for different leased cars - VAG lease
get Quantum silver @ 8.50, PPP get 'blue' oil @ 10.90, another type get
Quantum silver @ 12.25.... lists some 10 different lease companies.
