Booked in dealer for Friday and they say they use "Quantum" oil?!!!

Does anyone know a) what grade?, b) where I can buy top ups? and c) should I take my own Castrol Edge 0w30?

the quantum oil comes in all different grades.

5/40 is what i think they use in the mk4 r32 with fixed serviceing

top ups can be bought from vw or gsf i believe

The 5W40 stuff that VW dealers sell is Quantum Synta Gold. It's a fully synthetic which conforms to the VW 500 00 standard required for an R32 on fixed interval servicing. Quantum Synta oil is very highly recommended by VW enthusiasts and I would recommend (for normal road use, anyway) that you don't use anything else.

GSF sell Quantum Gold too, but the best place to buy it is at the VW shows - there are usually some really good deals to be had, especially if you buy lots at once!
