Looks very good.

There look to be two types of ecoplug, one for steel pans and one for aluminium.

It looks as if yours is the one for a steel pan, but I thought that the Treg pan was aluminium.

Can you advise?

The T3 TDI is a steel pan, hence, the reason why the magnet sticks to the pan.

I have no idea what your 2004 TDI's oil pan is made of.
Thanks for the quick reply Ben.

I just realised that I hadn't updated my car details. It's a 2012 V6 that I'm asking about.

I'd thought that the oil pan was aluminium because of the different arrangement of the drain plug being a recessed plug with an aluminium crush washer rather than the usual "bolt" type.

(Just noticed the site spell checker wanting to correct my spelling of aluminium :)).
