Motul Oil is now becoming more available here in the US and the now make a
"Specific 505.01" oil which exactly meets VW standards.  I checked online a
few days ago at a company (I have it on my home computer not at my office)
and they were going to charge me $120 for 4 - 5Liter bottles plus $10 for
shipping.  Not much more than for the Mobil Delvac 1.  I decided to go with
a local German speed shop/repair place for the same $130 per case of 4.
