Sorry for the late reply.

10w-40 semi is the norm and fine with regular changes.

The quality choice is for a 5w-40 full synthetic for oil changes around 10,000 miles.

Is it on the VW variable service schedule? Of the fixed service schedule?

If it is serviced every 10,000 miles you are on the fixed service schedule. I would have a look at a good 0w-40 or 5w-40 synthetic.

Plenty to choose from, Mobil, Castrol, Fuchs, Silkolene etc.

WHat cossie has your friend got? Might be able to do one oil for both... there can be a big difference between make and quality.
