Which oil have you used in your s tronic gearbox (s3 8v)
There is triple qx available and trade tec
(who ive spoken to on the phone and say its 100% suitable.)

Ive used the trade tec in my sons A3 8p s tronic, 5 months ago and seems to be ok.

I live and die by Liquimoly. They made noticeable improvements as far as engine oil is concerned. Better idle, a LOT LESS oil consumption, and the added benefit of spotting leaks more easily.

I have not noticed any difference in the gearbox fluids and I really do feel anything will do as long as it meets manufacturer's spec. I just prefer Liquimoly for all my fluids.

Cant you just get the OE stuff from TPS? It isn't due til 38K and there is a procedure for filling it I think... plus a filter.

I can, i used trade tec for my sons s tronic A3 8p... Just thought id ask what other people are using, audi dont make the oil, and its £130+ trade tech was £50.
Thinking of doing it soon, i know its not due yet. May be at 35k il just do it.... Or earlier... Do it myself so no labour to pay.
