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.
Oh great... well whatever it was I drained out of my 2009 at 80,000 miles was red. I wiped the filter housing out with white paper towels, definitely red fluid. The 40k service was performed by the dealer. I wonder what sort of koolaid they filled it with. Sorry for the misinformation, I'll go back and edit my original post.
