Guessing ur ride is most probably not a highly modded performance car that goes to track regularly so I would suggest 5w30 is sufficient.

Just follow what's recommended in your owner manual, you can't go wrong with that.

Seen their cars getting towed back from NSHW ?

normal driving is no issue, when you keep going at boost, then you will feel the after effects.

If you read the spec sheet.

Not all oil meet this spec, only certain oil will meet VW 504 like Mobil 1 5w30ESP, Mobil SHC formula V and Castrol SLX Professional LL03. That's why i say have fun finding these specially type of oil model.

Nope, Motul 300v doesn't meet VW 504 spec. Only MOTUL Specific 50400 507 00 oil then can use.
