Hi @cwhite11 ,

Here's a link to information regarding what grade of oil and how much is required for your vehicle. There is also information on the oil filter.

Here is a link to a video that shows how to change the oil and the filter in a 2008 VW Beetle that should be of some help.

Well there is 2 ways you could answer this question. You could use the traditional oil that the manual tells you to use, or if this were me. I would look at the year of my car and the mileage and then I would have to assess it from there. You do have a car that is 11 years old, but may not have a large amount of miles on it. If there is a large amount of miles on the car, you are going to want to switch to either the traditional 5/30w , 10/30w or 10/40w but high mileage. This will help the engine due to the fact that it is up there in mileage so it coats the engine a little bit better. Please REMEMBER check the OWNERS MANUAL if you are not sure on the proper weight of the oil. THen use that weight and add the High Mileage.

Well that would depend on how much you are wanting and willing to spend. THere is always a low medium and high scale for any type of work that we do on our cars. Like I teach my young adult kids, you get what you pay for, but if your doing the work yourself spend that little bit of extra because you are still saving from the cost of the mechanic any ways. Therefore, low scale I would probable say you can go to Walmart and get I believe Fram or I believe one by one of the major oil companies. Midscale would beI believe Dennis Kirk (They also make motorcycles from what I remember my son ordering his helmet from). High end I believe could be something that states High Performance or one through VW itself. I might be a little of on the exact name, but I know I am steering you in the correct location. I do hope that this info helps to the utmost, and personally I would go midlevel not dealership as the car is 11 years old and the dealership will price gouge you, That is coming from my son as he told previously. Bestof luck.
