I think it must be, the factory is adamant that *nothing else* be used in 
the tranny of my '87 Syncro, which is the Audi 4000 Quattro with VW Station
wagon body & Badges.  My wife once took it to jiffy-lube for its regular 3k 
mile oil change, where they convinced her that the tranny oil was dirty, so
she let them re-fill it with regular Tranny dino-juice.  I had to special
order the synthetic the factory specifies, and it was over $20/qt.
