    Check my thread for details. Sorry i am not more specific. Im on my phone and far from home.
    I will do. Thank you.

    UPDATE:

    Changed the fuel filter this morning and tooks it for a short run. It's still smoking at start and idle but not as much and the smoke now seems a shade or 2 darker in the blue direction, but still smells like diesel. Hardly smoking when driving.

    I also noticed that there is some smoke coming from somewhere near/on the exhaust manifold. But think I'll let the mechanic figure out where its coming from.

    I'll check in the morning if the filter change has helped with the starting issue. Lets hope so. I'd still like to hook it up and check the injector readings with VCDS.

I pulled the sump to fix an oil leak on 300'000km (about 50'000km on delo at that stage) and the honing marks were still visible. Sold it on 320'000km still running perfect.

    Changed to delo and problem solved.

    Castrol makes good gear oils but Im not convinced on their engine oils. Many report very good results from Castrol however. Each to his own.

    I would never use anything other than 505.01 in my R5. It contains special additives for the cams as the lifter cam lobes are narrow to make space for the wide cam lobe that actuates the PD injector.

    My dad has about 260'000km on his v10, but remember that the cam manufacturing on the v10 may be different on it.

    The only real instances reported of cam failure are on the R5 and 1.9 tdi. I would stick to 505.01 5w-40 for my R5. I believe only Liqui Moly and Fuchs provide the 505.01 spec in the 5w-40 weight oil.



    Sent from my iPad
    Planning a service for my Treg and wondering whether to go with the 505.01 spec oil or 506.01 and if the 506.01 then which brand to go with, Liqui Moly Synthoil Longtime Pro 0W-30 or RAVENOL WIV SAE 0W-30 http://ravenol.co.za/product/ravenol-wiv-sae-0w-30/

    Wind was howling from the front almost all the way to CT. Economy wasn't good. Only managed 10l/100km.

    Pictures above are through seweweekspoort pass. Absolutely stunning scenery!

    Safely home this time. I didn't use BP Bellville this time round. The volla performed flawlessly.

    Damn, slaapstad is well managed. Well impressed, apart from the average speed cameras in the 80 zones up Lowry's.

    Granted a lot was open road but I suspect my insistent pursuit of proper alignment and the all wheel drive plays a large part.



    Also, 3500 km since last service. Rings are sealing nicely and combustion is clean, else the oil would be a lot blacker. Lack of egr probably helps in keeping it clean as well

    Hmmm reconsidering an EGR blank on mine now...
    2007 Touareg 3.0 V6 TDI (Facelift, Air, Rear Diff Lock, Rear Mounted Spare)
    2008 Audi A4 B8 2.0 TDI (Multitronic)
    2009 KTM 990 Adventure (Daily Commuter & Weekend Fun)
    2012 Imagine Trailvan 4-Sleeper

    * consumption needs to be seen in the context that the vehicle is towing an Imagine Trailvan 50% of the time.

    @MARIUS, the mud tyres look awesome!

    how is the on-road performance at high speed above 100km/h? is there confidence inspiring grip or nervous as hell?

    More than enough grip but some of the gti dynamics has been lost. You can feel the big blocks moving around.

    Onroad performance is completely acceptable in my books. Its not a sportscar but still handles great with muds.
