Hi all just trying to get an clarification on whats required for Diffs, Transfer case, and Transmission oil requirements and its alternative to OEM.

The plan is to try and get it all in one place to help others as ive done a lot of reading and it all gets too much. any corrections and opinions are welcome and ill try to keep it all updated as best I can

T3 2011 TDI V6

Front Diff - G 052 145 A2 - 0.8L - Royal Purple 75w90 gear oil
Rear Diff - G 052 145 A2 - 1.25L - Royal Purple 75w90 gear oil
Transfer Case - G 052 515 A2 - 0.85L - Havoline DEXRON-VI Multi Automatic Transmission Fluid
Transmission - G 052 515 A2 - 10-12L - Havoline DEXRON-VI Multi Automatic Transmission Fluid

Is the above info correct?

Any additions/corrections are welcome and ill update

yes spot on , all those oils are great, my 2010 has had Castrol Edge pro 5w30 fill on even service,(main dealer VW), 0-159000 and it purr's. now its out of warranty I change oil every 4-5 miles ,abit OCD but just want look after it, and now many oils meet the 507 spec, some far superior , add to your list (redline euro 5w30) easter based, and so on ,,
