All R5 and V10 engines manufactured prior to 1 Jan 2006 should use 506 01 oils.
Those manufactured after should use 507 00 oils.
You should use 507 00,the handbook is right.

Yep 506.01 VW's Longlife II is the recommended

VW's Longlife III is the 507.00 and 504.00 oil

Unfortunately Even VW Dealers cant get this correct which is frightening

Due to short journies, I've decided to change my oil every 6 months so no need for longlife.

Which spec should I use?

Longlife oil is not just needed to last longer, it has better shear resistance to the wear, as such even doin the oil change more regular with Normal oil , can still do damage, However, VW's Platinum should be ok with the VR6 Golf unit
