Golf R oil weight

The owners manual states that 5W-30 or 5W-40 can be used but the sticker in engine compartment states 5W-30. I’m a new owner of a 2019 R so I found that to be interesting. I’m planning on using 5W-30 since two places note 5W-30. Does anyone use 5W-40?

WTH VW? Several different stickers with conflicting info, conflicting with the owner's manual, etc. Is this really that complicated? Watch - there will be a letter in the mail informing you that you need to come to the dealer to have the "proper" sticker installed. It's coming.
