Thanks for all the comments! I do appreciate it! The reason I went with the O-40W was because of the sale and 5-40W was not available. I guess I could have waited until it came in , but you know time and schedules ,,,, I realize the 0-40W , 0 does not mean zero protection, but it has got to be water thin,,, even with additives I'm still nervous.
I just wanted to hear, Its OK for someone who actually uses it, knows the temperature ratings,,, It really is hot here in FL!
Thanks again, Does anyone have a good site on this car/engine/ oil ? The problem is VW does not list its motor manual stuff on line that I can find?
