It’s good that you noticed your oil level was low! The correct 2015 Audi A6 oil type depends on whether you have an Audi A6 with a gasoline or diesel engine.
Here is Audi’s requirement for the 2015 Audi A6 oil type based on what kind of engine it has:
Engine type2015 Audi A6 oil type
GasolineVW 502 00 or VW 504 00
DieselVW 507 00
If you need to add oil to your engine but can’t find any that meets the above specifications, Audi says you can add “no more than 0.5 quart/liter” of a premium-quality synthetic oil that meets the specifications below:
Engine type2015 Audi A6 oil type
GasolineACEA A3 or API SM w/ viscosity grade of SAE 0W-30, SAE 5W-30, or SAE 5W-40
DieselACEA C3 or API CF w/ viscosity grade of SAE 0W-30 or SAE 5W-30
Using an oil type other than what’s been recommended for your vehicle can lower your engine’s performance, or worse, cause serious (and costly) engine damage.
For more oil recommendations for your 2015 Audi A6, you can refer to your owner’s manual.
