I have a helpful and great car maintainance tips from that worked very well.
This time i have different question.
My father owns VW POLO 1.5TDI india-2015 Model Diesel.

Does this car Model has ' Diesel Particulate Filter '?
If YES what is the Engine oil Brand can be used other than Castrol Edge (5W-30 or 5W-40)
If NO what Engine Engine oil can be preferred (5W-30 or 5W-40)

Please help me out with better options.


We also facing Vibrating Brake Pedal during Braking, might be Worn-out ROTORS.....Help me out for ROTORS DISCS replacement BOSCH service centres with OEM spares availability in Hyderabad.

DPF - Diesel Particulate Filter will only come in when BS-6 Compliant Cars will be rolled oit
Among mass market models - to the best of our info no OEM is offering in there Diesel Engines with DPF in India

Its 5W/40 Engine Oil - Volkswagen Genuine Engine oil which is recommended
For vibrations in brake pedal - Brake Pads/ Brake Rotor disc could be the common issue
Best to go with VW Genuine one - I think Brake rotor disc cost in around rs 4500, brake pad around rs 2500 - its not expensive considering in Genuine OEM grade and industry specific cost

Hope should help !!

Thanks for the above info
Comparing the Man hour costs and OEM spares costs other service centres like Mahindra First choice and Bosch service centres offering better services.
One of my family member also owns polo 1.5 tdi he prefers Valvoline synthetic it perfomed very well when i took it for a drive.
Suggest best brands of Engine oils and ROTOR and DISCS OEM brand,Planning to buy online that depends on you advice.
