i dont usually come over into this section but here goes:

A friend of mine wants me to service his 2007 Leon, what's the recommended oil.

I've got Castrol Edge 5w-30 Fully synthetic anyway ( i get trade and its what i happen to have in stock ) so it would be a massive bonus if its that

Also do you change any other filters on the oil service i.e pollen filter

and lastly is there a guide for the service light reset.

Im a BMW man so not overly clued up on the newer vag stuff

This is the information listed in ElsaWin.

AZV and BKD engines, oil conforms to VW 505 01 (VW 507 00 may also be used)
BMN engines, VW 507 00 only.
Castrol Edge 5W30 conforms to VW 507 00.

Air Filter .... every 60k Km or 6 years
Fuel Filter .... every 90k Km
Pollen Filter .... every 60k Km or 4 years.

I believe the Service Indicator can be reset via the tripometer stalk (same as VW Golf). There are a few threads on here about it.
