Stock VW/Audi fluid. Amsoil also makes a GL5 that IS compatible with
VW, Porsche, and Audi transmissions.
If you consider any GL5 rated fluid, triple check with the
manufacturer that it is compatible with VW/Audi transmissions and is
brass syncro safe. It used to be that all GL5 fluids were NOT, and
now several (including Amsoil) are; an additive that was in use to
help meet GL5 specs would destroy anything brass in very short order.
