Anything approved by vw with their 502 will work fine. Cheaper options include the stated Castrol and mobile 1. I've always used mobile 1 0w40 on my mercedes. Used it for my first change on my mk7 then after tuning switched to liqui moly 5w40. Engine runs a few degrees cooler, and oil is cleaner when I change it. It is not only recommended for vw502 it is most definitely approved by vw themselves. A simple check on the bottle or website will show you. Same with motul, and a lot of other high quality oils. Don't over think it. Go with something approved for warranty reasons and your fine.
