VW has many specs, which one are you trying to meet? The ones that come to mind are valvoline 5w40 and havoline 5w40.

Umm, German Syntec 0w-30. Here is the universal international mega-master list. Funny, German Syntec is not on this flawed list. One other "error" is that SynPower 5w-30 in USA is technically not "A3/VW502", I've confirmed this with a helpfull Valvoline tech. I say just use common sense...synthetic oil or A3 oil will work well. If you are driving a 1.8t, they do ok on thinner 30 weight like Mobil 1 5w-30, probally SynPower too. http://www.audiusa.com/common/images/Audi_Approved_Oil_Chart.pdf
