The weight for the rear diff oil is different from the main
transmission, I think. Regardless- there's no reason not to use the
VW/Audi synthetic fluids. I've found it gets a little hard to shift
in -25 degree F weather, but the seats also turn rock-hard, the
displays take seconds to 'update' and the exhaust pipe nearly seals
itself up :-)
