Is there any difference between Diff Oil and Haldex Oil?

    Silly question but I've seen a couple of times people talk about changing the oil in the Diff on S3, now this isnt something that seems to be in the service boo unless the Haldex Oil and Filter is the same thing???

    the rear diff and the haldex are two separate things connected to each other, the haldex is serviceable but the rear diff is a sealed unit and doesn't need an oil change. thats on the 8l anyway not sure if it's the same on the 8p
