I'm trying Motul 300V next. I've been using Miller's Oils CFS NT 5w40.

@Shoduchi, am I correct in thinking you live in the Lisbon area with idyllic weather (and seafood and wine....)? If so, you will likely have different needs to those of us in the permafrost northern european areas

300V Chrono is serious next level stuff......but....... 1) it's about £60 for 4 litres, and 2) they don't do it in 5W40.

I would take Fuchs TitanRace Pro S over that personally.  It's far better value for money and viscosities more suitable for the TFSI engine.  Opie Oils rate it very highly indeed.

Ester oil is great for turbo engines.  I ran the Pro S on a fresh VR6 Turbo build exclusively for 60K miles, and there was ZERO wear when I tore it down for some head work. Not even the slightest hint of a wear ridge in any of the cylinder walls.  I was running that for a while in my Ed30 and it's lovely, but the prices started going up, so I switched to Mobil1.


Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

My friend can get a good discount for the Motul 300V 5w40. It's cheaper than what I pay here for the Miller's Oils.

I'm referring to the Motul 300V Power 5W40:

The Chrono is too hardcore for my use. :signLOL:

PS: Yeah, here in Lisbon when its cold the temperatures drop to about 5ºC. It's near the sea. :smiley: Just the colder areas in the countryside can reach -10ºC.

Ah OK, regular 300V. That is still a great oil  :happy2:  I really like Redline as well, but that is expensive stuff!

The Motul 300V 5w40 is more expensive than the equivalent Red Line 5w40. They're all expensive oils.  :laugh:

Even the Motul 300V  Chrono 10w40 is cheaper than the Power 5w40. :doh: But I can get it much cheaper than the regular price, though. My friend buys lots of litres of Motul oil so he gets good discounts.

What do you guys know/think about 300V Chrono 10w-40 and 300V Competition 15W-50? I've won some and I'm wondering if I can use it or not. I'm thinking on using them 80% on track in the summer.

I think you can use both. @Tfsi_Mike is now using Miller's Oils CFS 10w50 NT+.  :smiley:

I've used Millers NT 10W-50 too.  :happy2:
I think I will use these sets also when it will get warmer.
