Assuming it meets the VW specs, it will be fine. One nice thing about those specs is that while oil may be harder to find and generally more expensive, ANY oil on the approved lists can be used without worry, and the performance of all of them is likely very near identical. So if it meets 507, it will work, period. I would actually prefer a 0w myself as it's going to flow better when cold.
