For my '07 VW Eos 2 liter turbo engine, please tell me which y'all think would be best, 0W-40 Mobile 1 or Syntec 5W-40. It requires a 502 oil. I drive about 8,000 miles a year and am now changing oil every 6 months. TIA

If all is same I'd pick M1 but if I can find Syntec at a decent price I don't hesitate buying that one either. With a reasonable OCI both will do fine but M1 has the edge in longer OCIs.

VW usually has their own specific specs for motor oil. Do these two oils meet the VW specs for this engine?
They both meet VW 502 and 505. M1 also meets 503.01.
