[Filters & Oil] ACEA C1 or C2 for my B9 with DPF?
Sorry, it's yet another oil thread.

My 2013 B9 has done almost 29000 miles, next service is due at around 30k so I'm planning to change the oil & filter this weekend, weather permitting.

The Warranty / Service book states that ACEA C2 (INEO ECS 5W/30) or C1 (INEO FIRST 0W/30) are both suitable, but reading the specs it seems that C1 is Low SAPS & C2 is Mid SAPS.

Just wondered what people are using, is there a good reason for using C1 oil if it's planned to change every 6k?

No replies to what's normally a hot topic, I guess everyone's thinking "Oh no, not again!"
I've re-read the threads in the B9 section and from what I can see, the C2 oil is fine for the DPF engines & in fact that's what I come across when I do a search for compatible oils against my reg.

Of the many threads & posts I looked through, this seems to be a good example:
Low and mid saps oils are fine mate with 0w30 you may get a few more mpg.
Thanks, I've ordered some Total INEO ECS 5W/30.
Most expensive oil I've ever bought!
Cheaper from here than the ECP Triple QX equivalent
I guess either oil is suitable, as the C1 will surpass the requirements .
However the 0/30 is very thin and could cause you to spring leaks that you didn’t have before.
The adblue cars now run in the 0/30 and I can’t see much change one the actual workings of the engine, apart from the fuel & injector differences.
The ad blue cars use a different oil filter also.
I think you made the correct choice to stick with the C2 tbh .
