    gearboxes don't need the oil changing like engine oil, they are almost a sealed unit.

    then again if you typed correctly (your car has done 170k miles) then there is no harm in changing it.

    Do you have a DSG? What year?

    If so then there is a service schedule for the oil, it's detailed in the manual.
