    Yup, been doing a lot of reading, perhaps too much. I just wish Audi went ahead and made it a 80,000 mile service item, then everyone would know what's up!

    I suspect Dialynx's quote is based on only replacing 3-4 litres of the oil, and certainly not the filters. I could ask them. I may also ask how much it would be to get the filter changed too.

    As always I would like to strike a nice balance between cost and reward. I think paying 720 for a full system flush when I'm not experiencing any issue with the car is a bit much

    Hi .

    Go with the first one, given the price of zf filud. But ask how much to change the filter. Then if still a good price get it in writing.

    Address 02: Auto Trans Labels: 09L-927-760.lbl
    Part No SW: 4F2 910 156 T HW: 09L 927 156 C
    Component: AG6 09L 3,0 TDI RdW 0020
    Revision: --H04--- Serial number: 4402665
    Coding: 0000001
    Shop #: WSC 02325 785 00200
    VCID: 3669DDA5415C5C9

    I think this means my gearbox should have ZF LifeGuard 6+ in it, seems hard to find though, and some places suggest 6+ has been superceded by 8. Can I mix the two in the gearbox? It looks like the DIY method won't drain it all out only about 50% of the oil.

    Hi there,

    Option 1 is too cheap - genuine audi oil 32 +VAT a litre round my parts, you need 4-5 ...... Also gearbox oil has to be at 40C temp wise, from experience the oil after driving is much higher than that and takes a long time to cool down so they would need car for longer to allow it to cool properly. PM gup as well as he had a bad experience with someone local to him.

    Option 2 - not sure, wasn't happy with their recommended aftermarket oil, would deffo go for lifeguard 6 which will put their price up a bit but Mark speaks well of the work they did for him.

    Option 3 - again dunno tbh, sounds overkill.

    For me if you are in doubt use either Audi or lifeguard 6 oil.

    Also my oil was pretty clean and I don't notice any difference in how car drives so in hindsight probably overkill to change in my case.

    If anyone spots any errors in my DIY guide please do speak up, intention is to help others so any mistakes would be good to see. Did alot of research in ZF and Audi tech guides beforehand mind.

    Remember (as I should !!) sometimes the best thing is to do nothing for the time being, if it works .......

    Hey guys,

    One more thing. Notice A8 says 8 litres if oil pan off. I didn't get this much out, after draining the sump, there was a bit more in the sump pan and some in the filter. Other members here also found same and when I paid to have it done couple of years back they only charged me for 5 Litres.

    In my research found a Sonnax guide on this gearbox:
    http://www.sonnax.com/system/pdfs/37...AutoChoice.pdf

    Page 28 shows refill is 4.2 litres.

    Not saying 8 litres is wrong, just I didn't get this much out so if anyone knows why the difference I'd be grateful.

    Tiptronic is different to multitronic. Your gearbox oil is a scheduled service item unlike in the tiptronic.
