Was the slx oil replaced?

I went to the dealer to purchase oil. I was given a different type of oil from what they use to sell. I took a picture Of the two. I'm assuming castrol changed the name but is the same fluid?

Ah, I did a double take on the same thing at the dealer a few weeks ago. I guess they are the same, heck, I had a quart of the oil from the black bottles and added that with seven quarts of the fancy gold/silvery stuff. I certainly hope they are the same.

They both do. The new Edge bottle has the same part number as the sticker under the hood telling you which oil/part number you need. I think the Edge is what VW sells for their diesels.
