Engine oil

Due to change engine oil of my T1 4.2 l V8 with odometer 185k , as well as the oil filter , I know it's 5w-30 for VW Touareg but some locals advised me of 10w-40 that's due to odometer reading higher than 100k .
Notice last time I changed the oil @ 175k with 5w-30 . Bizol oil
I need help . Thanks

check your user manual.

That isn't high mileage.

Use the oil weight based on your climate. Make sure it's 504.00 specification.

All vw/audi engines must use 507.00 spec oil except non-DPF R5/V10 engines that must use 505.01/506.01
