Searched already, found little.

Whats the interval on replacing the gear oil on a fwd transaxle? I have read everything from "good for life" to "every 60k". Is this ever replaced at the 60k or 80k services? When should I change it out if ever? I am at 100k now and the fluid in there now is from the factory to the best of my knowledge unless its part of the aforementioned schedlued services. Thank you.

Per VW, it is "filled for lifetime" with topping it off if need be at (I believe) 40k, 80k, 120k intervals.
I THINK Audi recommended drain/ refill every 60K.
Oddly enough, the replacement fluid has a shelf life of 2 years?
