... when I look at Audi's spec for the tranny/diff lube I don't see any
allowance for temperature variations ... and I'd imagine that there are
places in Europe where the car is sold that are as cold as Idaho.  Frankly,
I had concerns about matching the manufacturer's specifications with the
MT-90, but that is what I use in my car.  

As always everyone is free to do as they wish, but I tend to like to stay as
close to what the manufacturer specifies when it comes to lubricants ...
