Oil Requirements for an Audi TT

Priced at around £26,000 as of 2010, the Audi TT is a luxury two-door sports car that has extremely precise oil specifications. Replenishing the oil tank with anything other than what the manufacturer requires has the potential for causing damage to the engine.

Mobil 1 0W-40 European Car Oil

When taking your Audi TT to the dealership for an oil change, the dealership will generally use Mobil 1 0W-40 oil, which allows for optimum performance due to its viscosity.

Oil Filters

Oil filters in an Audi TT are not designed to be replaced because they come in the form of canisters that are intended to remain intact within the engine. The filter for an Audi TT must, therefore, be attached at the side of the oil cooler section of the canister in a 1.8-litre turbo 4 model engine.

Oil Specifications

Audi engines in models older than 2000 require 500.00 specification oil. 503.01 specification oil is the grade used in the Audi TT, as well as the Audi S3 and Audi A8 6.0 V12. These particular car models take 503.01 specification oils because of their output rate, which can reach 180 horsepower.
