No it isn't. DSG ATF tt is light amber, looks like motor oil, always has. It has a distinct smell, somewhat pleasant actually.

This is why it is so important to verify the correct ATF, since VAG uses so many different transmissions and different fluids. And this is also why I hate it when people say "Tiptronic" since that means nothing.
