You should check out the DIY Oil Change Deals thread, it has these sorts of deals all the time (in fact it likely has this deal in it already). In fact you can pretty much at random go to autozone or advance auto parts and find a 5 qrt Mobil 1 + filter deal for 30-35 bucks, so while a good deal it's not really "slick" since it has been available pretty much constantly for at least the past 8-16 months. I usually get 0w-40 M1 or 0w-30 german castrol.
Why do you "need" this for your VW GTI?
Are you saying that your VW GTI will not run on any other brand of oil?
lol are you seriously going to nag this guy over his choice of oil? It's motor oil, he was looking for M1 0w-40 for his car. It meets some of the strictest VW specs so maybe he just wanted to go with an elite oil - and lets face it, if we're talking about oil you can just go out and buy locally in the USA the best from major manufacturers are 0w-40 M1, 0w-30 Castrol (EDGE SPT made in germany), M1 Extended Performance line, also maybe Pennzoil Euro Formula.

What oil does the owners manual recommend for your vehicle?
Whatever oil that is recommended is what you should use. Anything over and above that is just a waste of money and is not a "Slick" deal in any sense.
0w40, but more specifically, they recommend anything that meets GM-LL-A-25 spec. I know that the spec is just a label, but I'd rather not risk having the dealer deny me warranty work if my engine blows and attempt to pin it on owner neglect.
Plus it takes 42 liters of oil to do an oil change in a Veyron.
WHAT?! Is that to flush it out, or is there a tank just to store that much oil?
Required for my VW which holds 12 quarts. I wonder if they have the proper filter for a W12?
Even this seems like a lot! Wow, my (realistic) dream car is an R32, not knowing that VW actually built a supercar... to be honest, it looks kind of funny only because it's like some Italian-made or whatever looking vehicle, but with a VW symbol put on it. Lucky you!
For those of you German cars, DO NOT use the Mobil1 filters on your cars! Instead, get the oil for your car and Mobil1 filters for your other car or your wife or kids' cars. Some engines require fleece filters, and the vast majority of aftermarket filters have crappy o-rings for the oil caps and you will leak. If its not MANN, Meyle, or Hengst, just say no.
Advance Auto now carries MANN filters, and they're surprisingly cheap in-store, even cheaper than the Mobil1 filters! Not sure if you can get the manager to give you credit on the Mobil filter towards a MANN filter. Many of us import owners used to order our filters online to save money, but now we can get them locally at AA.
We have an E350 and a 540i in the family and each one requires 8 quarts at a time, we like to stock up on oil from these deals, pay extra for the MANN filters and grab the Mobil1 filters for the other cars.
