Not everything you wanted to know, but interesting reading. If you're just topping up, stick with G12 (or G12+) and you can buy it cheaper elsewhere than the stealership. If you're doing a flush, it 'appears' that the universal G-05 would be acceptable....but....I would consider the fact that VW doesn't put G-05 in from the factory...mabye it's because they have some sort of contract with BASF (who make the G12 etc)???
