    Polo Engine Oil Newbie Question

    Hi,
    I have a VW Polo 9N (03 plate), 75kw petrol engine.

    Today the oil light came on for the first time since buying a couple months ago. I did a quick google and found its recommended to use 5W30. Since I was near a Morrisons I called in and picked up their own brand 5W30, this one:
    https://groceries.morrisons.com/webs...etic/471769011

    Now I've got back home I checked the manual and it says to use oil that meets the 503 00 spec (I think its now 504 00). I can't see anything on the Morrisons bottle relating to VW specs, is it okay to use this to top the oil up?
    It also mentions to use ACEA A2/A3 spec, the Morrisons one is ACEA C3. Is that alright?

    I'm planning on taking the car for a service next month anyway, so even if its not ideal is it okay for now? Or does it HAVE to specifically meet 503 00 standard?

    Its my first car and I don't want to do any serious damage.

    Thanks for any help!

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, is this your VW Polo 9N (03 plate), 75kw petrol engine or are you trying to fix someone else's?
