    5W-30 is fine. I believe Shell Helix ULTRA comes in that grade.

    For your 2.0T I'd stick with 5W30, fully synth obviously. The Vx one is as good as any other and if you can get trade price brings it down to around £25 instead of over £40.

    5w40 will be fine, it's just a tiny bit thicker when up to temperature than the 5w30
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
