15k km or 1 year between oil changes. I'm still wrapping my head around that as every other car I've had was 5-6k km between oil changes or 6 months. What other intervals are you looking for?
This has been a thing for a long time with Vw. My 08 Gti service intervals were 16k km. Once the car got to 100k I did it every 10k since it had stage 2 tunning. Never had an issue.

2018 Alltrack is also the same I believe. 15-16k km or every 12 months. So far 12 months has always come first since it does about 10k a year.

Were you using conventional or synthetic oil in the cars you were changing out oil every 5-6k km?

Hi all, I was wondering if any of you lucky guys who received your NA spec cars can share some details, or pictures of the owners manual recommended maintenance schedule and details. I am curious about the intervals and specific items for the R.

Thanks!

It doesn't look like it's been updated with the 2022 R yet but you look at the 2019 and it'll give you an idea of what the 2022 will most likely be like.

That just seems way too large of an interval to me. Not sure I would be comfortable with that even if its within a year.
This has been pretty standard for Vw for a long time now. My 08 Gti oil change interval is 16k km. 18 Alltrack every 15k.

Unless you are beating on the car and driving in extremely harsh conditions this is fine. Oil and engines have evolved quite a bit since the days of 5k km conventional oil changes.

But you are always free to change it out earlier.
