What is the Audi A6’s oil type?

I have an Audi A6 and it’s my baby. As such, I don’t trust anyone to drive it or do work on it, especially when I’m fully capable of doing it myself. Since I just bought it, I’ve never changed the oil before—what type of oil do I need for an Audi A6?

Having a car like the
Audi A6
definitely feels like you have a new child. If you want to change the oil on your own, use either 5W-30 or 5W-40 motor oil—both types will lubricate the engine properly and provide great performance no matter where you drive.
