If you have the A3 pads, then dont worry about it, the 10w30 will be just fine. Sometimes, oil can cause the cork pads on a35 and a55 to deteriorate or swell, but a3 pads are more robust.

However, if you can find it, a non detergent oil would be ideal, because it wont keep the particulate matter suspended in the oil, and will therefore lead to longer transmission and clutch life in the long term...as these engines do not have oil filters. the 10w30 will be fine, but if you can find non-detergent 30 weight oil, i would run that.
