Well, I dunno about arguments, but I do know it seems every other day
someone is asking "what oil do I use in my tranny and rear diff?"
Heck, -I- don't know what oil goes in my 200q20v's drivetrain

It is an important fluid change- and we need to document it better.
If people send me info, I'll compile it based on model(perhaps it can
be the start of a technical library on Audifans.)

List the car year, model, AND the tranny code...and then give the
part number/weight(along with the brand name of course ie Redline,
Amsoil, Audi OEM, etc.)  Be sure to specify if it is the rear diff or
transmission.  While you're at it, capacities wouldn't hurt :-)

Please double-check/confirm all information...
