Id say the oil pump drive has failed buddy common prob on mk5 Axx engines drive cog collapses thus no oil pressure , can be ok if sorted on time ie chain rattle looks as if yours hasnt , new engine is lookin like the only option fella  :sad1: :sad1:

Do
All the servicing on the floor
Mate belt water pump etc plus I'd be doing the cam chain & tensioner while your there . Do no harm to drop the sump check the oil pump drive & clean the lift pipe ..
Hope it works out for you mate 👍👍
