I'm from Belarus and I have Audi A4 with Multitronic, right now I need to change oil in my CVT.

But prices for original Audi CVT oil is very high here - around 35 dollars for 1 liter.

I found CVT oil Liqui Moly ATF 1400 special for Audi CVT and price is only 12 dollars per liter.

Guys, maybe you know anything about LiquiMoly CVT oil?

Or is better to buy original one?

But maybe you know - there are two types of oils for CVT G052516A2 and G052180. In exUSSR there is believe that G052516A2 is for CVT 2011+ and G052180 for 2000-2011 cars.

I've spent a week to find an answer, even dealer don't know the difference and offer me G052516A2 oil with work for $280.

Thank you!

P.S Sorry for my English, it's not my native language.

Have a nice day! (or night?)
