I use 5/40w fully syn basically same as vw pd oil high sheer , found it to be better stable with the temps and as they wear ,, viscosity is more about emissions when engine was new than protection that came from a castrol oil rep I was talking to,
5W40 it is from now on then. 馃憤

I see two types of Castrol Edge available, one is labeled a "Euro" type. (See attached pics)

Can I use either?
To get back to your original question (sorry for thread hijack) I think you would be ok with either.
Although as Mike has said, its probably better for the engine to use 5W40.
