I use Mobil 1 for my S3; I change it every 5K miles along with the filter cartridge. I also replace the drain plug with a new one each time. Cheap insurance for a good-running, long-living motor.

Castrol Edge Longlife at the moment, no problems as such, but in all dyno tests I've seen Millers Nanodrive adds between 5 to 10 bhp, so will likely engine flush next time and use Nanodrive, depends if I remember.

Also I add some Redex to the fuel tank once a year, a week or so before the service.

Ravenol 5w40 in a kit so I get a new drainplug and filter. No issues so far. I am changing around 5-7k and am not running a catch can yet.
Blauparts SKU: J1A5120-I (also on Amazon)

I also just did the haldex and DSG with Ravenol oils, no issues. The Haldex fill hole is ridiculously small, no idea why they did that. I plan on installing a 90 degree adapter to make that job easier.
