The standard gearbox oil (part number G 052 532 A2) is a 75W - 90 oil. Opie oils sell it (although it's cheaper on Ebay).
    Have you got them part numbers mixed up?

    If the 'A1 p/n is the lighter stuff that would suggest he's just replaced the lighter stuff with the thicker stuff

    What's the price difference between Fuchs and vag one?

    Fuchs Titan Sintofluid SAE 75W - 80 covers part numbers G 052 171 A1 & G 052 171 A2. The same fluid covers both part numbers for the thinner oil. The standard thicker oil part number is G 052 532 A2 and is a 75w - 90 oil

    So do you know the exact oil and by which oil company it is then for definite ? As I'm sure the people on here would like to know as it will be cheaper to buy?

    Hmm, looks like a few posts have been removed when the site was down. That's a bit of a bugger. No matter. bear with me as I'm struggling to post anything at the moment and all my posts are formatting as one long string of words. No paragraphs working. Just to recap, the specs on Opies website don't match the specs on Fuchs website. At present I'm unsure which oil Fuchs recommend as there's conflicting data. I've contacted opie and had a quick email convo with one of their guys (who's a member on here) and pointed him to this thread but he's also having problems posting at the moment. I'd be inclined to wait until there's some feedback from them rather than my educated guesswork, but as I said before it was wiped, I'm inclined to think that perhaps Fuchs make the VAG stuff and rebrand it for them.

    Well, I'm still having issues posting (although I've found a temporary fix here), so I reckon it's still the same for Opie. I'm sure they'll respond when the forum allows it. In the meantime the Fuchs lubricant advisor (here) has no data for some of the models I checked. My car however (2008 Jetta 140) lists TITAN SINTOFLUID FE 75W as suitable for the gearbox.

    Taken from another forum

    "Fuchs HAD the right oil here for the 6 speed gear box with the TITAN SINTOFLUID SAE 75W-80 which did carry the G052171A2 designation but in 2011 this was changed and the G052171A2 was removed from the 75W-80 but added to TITAN SINTOFLUID FE SAE 75W

    The problem is you can't find this oil here so if you want something that says G052171A2 then its OEM stuff and time to fork over the big bucks."

    This is probably why there is conflicting data.

    Apparently from 2011 the vw approval moved from the sintofluid 75w80 to the sintofluid fe sae 75w found below

    http://www.opieoils.co.uk/pv-1210-fu...FaXMtAoddjoARw

    So essentially the above oil could be what was bought for £20 per litre from the dealer, just rebranded.

    Yes mate I did mine and it seems to be a lot better I used G 052 171 A2 from Audi £20 a litre though and it took 4.2 litres but it helped massively.

    One thing to remember here, VAG itself will not make any oils, Fuchs do tend to get listed as a preferred supplier to VAG factories, though it looks like Castrol are also a preferred supplier for some oils - judging by the info on the engine oil fill caps. Seat used to suggest that they favoured Repso - though that is fair enough as they are a Spanish company!

    Yes it isn't vag it's another brand of oil but if you read through nobody had managed to match the oil for certain so I say just pay it its a 1 off oil change so it's not a big deal its £100 well spent if say.

    No I agree nobody could give a definitive answer, however if you have a notchy gearbox £100 isn't that much to pay for the oil from Audi if it sorts it out like it did mine.

    Don't mind paying £100.

    Just cant see how changing for the same oil will make a difference? Surely is needs to be a different viscosity or have different additives or something to make a difference.

    As I think I said in the other thread it is a lighter oil it may be worth a read to see if you think it is rite for you though.
