5 litres of oil will leave enough left over for top ups. Personally. I would just stick with the OEM filter. There are many versions of Castrol Edge therefore make sure the one you use complies with VW507.00

Thank's Cuprabob for the info and tip regarding filter.
Do you access the oil filter from the top of the engine or do you have to remove the splash guard under the engine and remove from bellow.
