If that's your definition for "better" than that's fine. Despite the lack of the flexible service display ou can of course achieve the same extended drains by monitoring oil condition via UOA. Taking that to the extreme, in the end that's of course more costly than changing the oil. I feel confident going 10k miles with an A3 or VW 502.00 rated oil (or M1 5W-40, which is what I'm actually using) in my normally aspirated engine. I don't think I'd benefit from a VW 503.01-rated oil, in fact when I used M1 0W-40, oil consumption went up. VW 503.01 was designed for those really log OCIs of 20, 30 and up to 40k, maybe more, km. Then this oil spec is certainly indicated!
