Again, NO!

GL5 is an extreem pressure lubricant, designed for the requirements of
hypoid gearing.  While it will not hurt a tranny, it will slow your syncro
action noticeably.  Judging from past posts on this and the 20V list, the
consenus is that tranny fluid should be replaced with the Audi spec stuff
for best syncro performance.  If wallet is fat enough to replace, go for the
real juice!
