Default RE: approved oils in North America

My office back in Ann Arbor was right across from Car and Driver. I use to go in on Friday afternoons and just pick his brain about all things automotive. Our parking lot at that office was amazing. On any given day there would be four of five different new cars, some with the body cloaks on them. Some of the pictures of cars in C&D are shot in the back forty of that parking lot. Good times.

clconversion,
You may want to add the Bardahl 5W40 XTC oil in your list. I have a letter from VW/Audi Canada approving the oil.
