from wiki it says "The i-CDTI non-DPF engine needs ACEA A5/B5" is this correct?

i understand it needs to be fully synthetic 0w-30.

but castrol edge is ACEA A3/** only?! please correct me if i'm wrong. as this is what i'm using right now, since its highly recommended here.

i'm about to buy some more oil so will A5/B5 spec oil be better?
for example this one?
Motul 8100 Eco-nergy 0W-30 Fuel Economy Petrol and Diesel engine oil 100% Synthetic

Maybe wrong and got it wrong way round but A5/B5 is lower quality oils whereas A1/B1 is the best so if I have got it correct A3/B3 is perfectly fine.
