You didn't seriously just post that did you? Jeeze....seriously man, read and think before you look like an idiot. The oil, no matter what, has to meet V@'s requirements, not just a random viscosity. So yeah if it's not the factory VW fill, 5w-30 isn't a rule of thumb, it's a guideline for thickness, for an oil that NEEDS to meets VW's seal of approval.
