    I've tried searching, looking in the owners manual but can't seem to find the gearbox oil capacity for the S3?

    can anyone help?

    Remember it needs to be fully synthetic, I got some Motul stuff from http://www.opieoils.co.uk/ and got a members discount for being a member on this forum:icon_thumright:

    I just bought 4 litres of Castrol Edge 5w 30 from Halfords for £42.
    Are you sure it only holds 2.6 litres?? Seems a little low to me.
