If stock power and not tuned, nothing wrong with dealer sourced fluid, OR ANY OTHER BRAND EQUIVALENT GL4 75w MT gear oil.
If tuned, I'd consider going thicker.
VW gear oil visc's have been all over the place over years. Thin trend now is for best MPG and shiftability. The commonality that I recommend is GL4 and full synthetic or MT specific synth blend. Visc depends on you but isn't OE is ~<7cst?
What MT PN was originally required, and what comes up now for your VIN number at the dealer? and how many times has VW superseded it over the years?
Service interval depends on weather, power level, driving style.... 30k for excessive mods, and 50k for normalcy. It is definitely should be addressed now and consider UOA too.
I vote for RedLine MTLV for stock and MTL for modded.
