Manual-Shift gear oil

My Audi is sort of hard to shift in cold weather - especially 2nd and 
reverse. A couple of times, I haven't been able to get it into 2nd at all 
at a stop light ( doh! ) and had to go to third instead. I hear that 
Redline MTL gear oil will work - Has anyone tried this? What weight oil 
do you use? Would it really help me more than just getting fresh gear oil 
from the parts counter at the Audi place? 
According to my owners manual, the gear oil supposedly doesn't need to be 
changed. ever. I don't believe that, but will the local Audi place 
service it if I ask them to? 

Thanks a lot..
