the new range states vw and Porsche apporoved for 504 507

I'm assuming the specs you mention (504 and 507) are 504.00 and 507.00? 504.00 would appear to be a specification for Petrol engines whilst 507.00 is a Diesel oil spec which appears to be a longlife oil suitable for use on vehicles fitted with DPF's, but is also fine as an alternative to a 505.01 spec oil.

There's an interesting article on VW oil specs here, including a very handy flow selector chart at the bottom of the article which makes things clearer.
Always learning..... Often by mistakes!
