These are the oil specs in the GTS manual -

SAE 5W-40, API SL, ACEA A3, JASO MA Synthetic oil

Some of the specs such as SL are backwardly compatible. In other words, the newer SM and SN specs meet the SL spec as well. Given that, there should be all kinds of oils on the shelf that meet the above specs.
