I got this done a few months back. I got a lower quote from a vw approved independent, and the dealer was prepared to drop about 100 from the vw list price. It takes about 6 litres of oil apparently and a couple of hours to do. The book says every 40,000 miles I think, If you skip it you are braver than me, those gearboxes are expensive!

Go to main dealer for it. Transmission oils can be a bit of a minefield. We got diff oil for my dads rav direct from toyota and changed it. 2 months later the diff was howling. Turned out theres 2 types of diffs on the newer ravs and they sent the wrong oil. Luckily they replaced the diff under warranty but had it been a customers car would of been a problem not to mention embarassing.
