OE VW stuff and you need 3L.
I bought the VW spec Castrol Syntrans Transaxle 75w-90 at first but I found the gear change when cold wasn't as good, I actually swapped the oil back to oe stuff last night.
You will need a M16 security spline bit to un-do the bungs

If you can get TPS to sell you the oil it's was something like £14.43 + vat a litre, I did buy mine from our local dealer as they are only 1 mile down the road but as they know I have an account with TPS they usually match the TPS price anyway.
