Which engine do you have in your A6? Will you be changing the oil filter at the same time you are changing the oil?

6sp 01E gearbox takes 2.3 liters for 4wd. 5 sp 01A 4wd takes 2.7 liters. 2wd doesn't show in my manual. Check if your transmission has 2 drain plugs, probably not on 2wd though. 4wd 01E's have 2 with the second back on the tail piece.

Technically the 01E 6 sp is supposed to be filled to 7mm below the fill hole and you check it with an allen wrench as a dipstick. 5 sp is a fill till spills out hole. Buy 3 liters. fwd may be different, but 3 should be plenty. I have a hunch most transmissions, even the 01E's are filled till spill and the 7mm measurement is ignored.

search the forum for many posts on best oil. I use Mobil 1 0w40 or 10w 40, of Castrol Syntec 5w40. Didn't we say 6.1 liters. Lubri Moly is claimed to be very good.

For transmission I use redline MT-90. It's a 75w90 GL4. don't use GL5. there are many other brands, be sure to use synthetic GL4
