GL4, how about GL2 through GL5?

I have Amsoil "I don't remember what" inside my tranny. Whether it was GL4, or
GL4 I don't know...but I do know that I put the right stuff in my '89 90
quattro! (5 spd).

Check the archives, I'm sure the discussions with my tranny/email address will
be in there.

Shifting smoothness was improved quite a bit. Solved my cold shifting
problems...until my clutch started causing other ones.

Beat the snot out of it rally racing for two events...still has it's 'fresh'

I'd highly recommend the Amsoil product.
