Default Pentosin ATF 1 vs. Audi/VW ATF

Is Pentosin ATF 1 the exact same as the Audi/VW ATF sold at dealerships. The Pentosin is sold under the same part number (G052162A2) at ECS and Adirondack. The Pentosin is only $8.00 / liter vs. $16 for the Audi/VW bottle. I've compared the two oils (On a flat surface under light) and see no visible color differences...Is Audi/VW just bottling the Pentosin or are they using another manufacturer? Thanks for any input,

Matt

Default They're both using Esso LT 71141

So are a bunch of other ZF transmission-using manufacturers. There are part numbers for Jag, BMW, Land Rover, etc.

I asked the same thing and here is the link to that thread:

The consensus is that they are the same. Audi just marks it up their customary 100% after they put their name on it.<ul><li><a href="https://forums.audiworld.com/a8/threads/16810.phtml#82538">https://forums.audiworld.com/a8/threads/16810.phtml#82538</a</li></ul>
