Ah this is garbage-
Talk to any tranny guy. Synthetic or not, the fluid looses it's cleanliness
and protective properties. Tranny guys recommend that you change your fluid
and filter every 2 years or 30K miles. I have even had a even been told by
a few to do it once a year and change the filter every other year. This is
the practice I prefer. CHANGE IT.
Enough Audis to give plenty of headaches.
