Hi all,
My Golf is asking to fill up with oil!
Just wanting to know what the best oil to use is and where to get it from?

new golf needs a top up already?

with the release of the mk7, i thought VW would've solved the mk5 and mk6's drinking problem by now

but anyway, you can use any oil that meets VW oil standard 502.00 or 504.00 - simply check the label on the bottle

Ouch, if it is asking for oil in mfd, damage is a potential (assuming the mfd warning is due to oil pressure too low!) Avoid driving it if you can!

the low oil level warning lamp is yellow - if this comes on, you'll be told to check the oil level and top up if necessary

the low oil pressure warning lamp is red - if this comes on, you'll be told to stop the vehicle asap

Thanks for the clarification! Still wise to drive minimally and resolve asap I guess, as accelerating up/down a very steep hill could stop oil reaching pick up.

Go to dealer. They should do it for free
