    So I think I answered my own question

    Found this,

    W57 be the same yeah?

    And this for W58 which states
    API service GL-4 or GL-5
    SAE 75W-90 or 80W-90

    Strange I can't actually find W57 reference.

    Stuff we use at work in every manual is VMX80

    So if it's anything like that should be fine.
