    Anyone want to share a 20L of DSG oil in sydney???

    Been changing my own oil twice. Just checked with dealer and they no longer sell dsg oil in 1L bottle only 20L drum, to prevent outside mechanic or backyard oil change(make more money)

    So im looking for someone wants to share a 20L drum. It's the oil for gen1 6 speed DSG box. (Not the new 7 speed). Takes 4.6-4.8L per change depending on if u have the wet/dry clutch version. Will work on all gen1 6 speed dsg 2004-2011 depends on ur car model. Works with audi/seat/skoda too.
    Mine is a 05 model 2.0tdi. So yeah I dont think I'd be keeping the car for another 240,000km.

    Cost of 20L is about $450. Im in sydney south PM me if ur interested.

    Is that for Motul fluid?
    You can get Penrite a fair bit cheaper. Maybe keep an eye out for a sale on at Sparesbox or supercheap?

    Yes guys I've tried aftermarket oil but my gearbox did not like it. Clutch stutters like mad and huge jerk during shift. Last time I tried liqui moly and immediately I go buy dealer oil and its working normal. I use the car for towing so under heavy load it's bad. Imo dealer oil still the best. Dont want the chances.

    is it Pentosil FFL2?
    It's interesting to hear that you have noticed such a difference between different DSG fluids if they all meet the VW specification.
    What was it that John Laws used to say?

    yes my car is strange, well at least i know it doesn't take liquiMoly. at 200 dollar a pop and risking the gearbox, i'll stick with dealer oil.

    in fact it's pretty cheap at $450, thats like $110 worth of oil per change + filter
