Not a problem to use in my car even though it needs 5w30? I'm not an expert with viscosities other than following the manual

If you read into manuf baloney, it's b/c there's a 2% gain in fuel economy going down one weight. Remember the switch to 20 weight years ago when every car prior to that year spec'd 30? As long as it makes it past warranty, they do not care. Ever hear a car using 20 weight, then change to 30? It's night and day. The clattering is gone (people will tell you that doesn't mean 20 has increased wear... LOL). Only certain new engines (like tard ford) actually require 20 weight, b/c of their poor engineering of oil galleys. Technically, assuming your engine isn't significantly worn, then 30 can provide the same protection as 40. Everything except the best 30 shears to 20 (and sometimes really fast), though.

Rule of thumb is that you can go up one grade from manuf spec. Back when some cared about engine life, there were multiple weights recommended. 30 if that's all you had, 40 was good and 50 if warm climate or summer (for performance engines).
Being a 0W is the most important as it allows good flow when cold. That's where most wear occurs. This being a very high grade oil will then completely protect the engine the rest of the time, too. Also, you can run it for long OCI with an appropriate filter. It won't wear out quickly and even if you run it long enough to substantially shear, then it doesn't matter (oh noes, down to 30 weight vs 20 water). It may also help a little with oil consumption, and if engine is worn, then it fills the larger tolerances reducing wear.

If you're not comfortable with 40, then get the castrol 0w30. It's heavier than normal 30s.

Nissans really need 40. They chew up and spit out 30 for breakfast. German cars are garbage, but there's a reason why they spec 40...they must keep wear down on those piles LOL. And that's with Euro regulations!
Every car brought to me gets the better oil, especially b/c no one ever changes it on time, anyway. Almost all of them have sludge, which wouldn't happen if running synthetic. And this oil is real syn.

If you're not keeping it till it dies, then who cares, I guess. I beat the shit out of my cars and don't sell them.
