VW Lifetime fill results at 90,000 miles. Copper 826 Iron 316 Chromium 1 Aluminum 13 Lead 147 Moly 2 Phos 359 Zinc 49 Mag 3 Calcium 183 silicon 6 antifreeze zero water zero Vis Cst 6.09 Oxidation 18% Nit 0% If this is lifetime fill. I think this AT may be older than the rest of the car. I can't attest to the sample drawing technique.

Either this AT is in trouble or the tech who changed the oil did not draw a good sample. As for changing proceedure VW is full of it. The AT has a stand pipe intergrated with the drain plug. Next change I'm going to do it myself. Adding warmed oil until it runs out of the stand pipe.
