1) In countries where the ambient temperature frequently falls below --20 °C, we recommend the use of 0W instead of 5W products.

2) To increase the service life of the diesel particle filter, Longlife-04 oils are recommended as soon as they available.

3) Can be used on vehicles without DPF.

4) Recommended for vehicles without DPF and for non-EU countries.

5) TU2 = T2 / TOP = S

6) Valid as from model year 2014
