dont remeber the capacity, but the procedure. when VW went from 4 - 5 speed
they were reluctant in relocating the fill hole (i.e. didnt cast new 5-speed specific
tranny housings) but the 5th gear assmbly that was added required extra lube.
therefore fill till oil runs out just like on the 4 speeds. then remove the 
speedometer cable from the tranny and complete filling to proper capacity.

get some good stuff, full sythetic i like the purple ;~> 
these cars are worth the extra $$. get the heavier viscosity ending in -140
still thinner than conventional hypoid lube but it stays the same when running at 300f
with much better protection!
where are you?
