    Are you supposed to use 5w30 in warmer weather, and 10w30 in colder, or is it the other way around?

    vice versa. Actually you're supposed to use 10w30 year round except in extreme conditions, according to the owner's manual on my '91 Tsi.

    Your suppose to use 10W-30 is the summer and 5W-30 is a winter oil.

    10W-30 when the temperature is not lower than -20C(-10F) but higher than 35C(100F)
