You did not say what grade of oil you are using or how long it has been since the last oil change. Are you using OEM oil filter?
Oil pressure at .5bar at idle is not dramatic. What's you idle RPM? maybe it is too low.

the erratic gauge almost always means bad sending unit (on any car). I would replace that first. If it does not help, test the gauge next, then go to a mechanic and for $25 have them test the actual oil pressure. Sure beats killing yourself guessing.
