The manual says 502. Unless they've changed it, VW's specification cross reference indicates that 504 is acceptable in any 502 application. That's from memory, there was some confusion when the CR Tdi came out in 2009 and 504/507 oils started showing up.
502 is an obsolete spec in any market but North America, completely replaced by 504 in the rest of the world.
