Does anyone know what's the Gearbox Oil Change intervals on an A4 (B8) 2012 Multitronic Gearbox? I see that mine was done at 60 000km's (which was covered under motorplan).

"How often do you need to change the oil and the external filter?

The oil must be changed every 60000 km., together with the external filter. When changing the oil use only Audi one – the original ones are G052 180 А2, G052 180А6, G052 180 А9, depending on the type of the gearbox."

Thanks, this helps.

Any idea of the itemised price for oil, filter and labour?

The oil is fairly pricey per liter and auto boxes general have the filter integrated into the pan, so that piece is expensive. Anywhere from 3-5k for a service at ZF (the gearbox manufacturer), whom I highly recommend.

Interesting because a transmission oil change and filter came to R6500.00 for a Fiesta powershift in September 2015 at a Ford dealer.

I think ZF is more common, and dealer pricing is usually overpriced.

They recently ran a special for BMW and were charging around 3k for the full service.

The powershift is also dual clutch box, so might also why it cost more.

I still need to do the ZF service on my car, will do when I have leave again from work.
